What are you and your family up to this summer?
Whatever it is you’re doing this summer, we hope you will 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 (parents not eligible to win prizes but win by making healthy choices as a good mentor for your family).
If you want to join in, create a profile on the SuperTracker website: www.supertracker.usda.gov and join the Amherst Pediatrics Summer Health Challenge Group by using activation code: GEYI-MHAD
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 our website 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.
So join us in the Amherst Pediatrics Summer Health Challenge - have fun, get fit, and earn a prize!
