Amherst Pediatrics Summer Health Challenge


Join us in the Amherst Pediatrics Summer Health Challenge, an exciting, new program your entire family can take part in! The Challenge will last for 9 weeks from June 26-August 25 and is a fun and interactive way to get you thinking about your body and making healthy choices. The Challenge is open to you and your parents (participants over the age of 22 not eligible to win prizes but win by making healthy choices as a good mentor for your family). Participants do not need to be patients at Amherst Pediatrics in order join.

 

Each week, you earn points by participating in some type of physical activity or healthy eating. All members who are entering their activities into their SuperTracker profile will be entered into a weekly raffle (see below for details about prizes for the weekly raffles).
 
Whoever has the most points at the end of the Summer Challenge wins an awesome prize! More details about the prize to be announced soon.
 

Physical activity points can be earned by doing lots of different things like walking, running, dancing, playing a sport, mowing the lawn, etc. You can earn points by making sure to eat fruits, vegetables, and other healthy choices throughout the day. You can also earn points by participating in weekly Group Challenges.
