Share a short video clip or photo during your next nature hike; take a selfie from the trail or the basketball court; or show us a healthy meal you’ve prepared together. The more ways you can show us what you do to stay healthy and fit, the more we can encourage others to do the same.

Incorporating exercise and a healthy diet into a family’s lifestyle takes a village, and nobody likes to celebrate their successes alone. So rally the troops, and let’s develop new skills and habits together that will last a lifetime!

Here are some other ways you and your family can participate in the Fit Family Challenge this fall:
