How the Challenge Works - and an Update
Back in the spring, TOPS President Rick Danforth challenged us all to move more in 2019. Thanks to all who reported your minutes from May 1 to August 31. For our halfway-to-goal tally, you told us you did everything from Appalachian Trail hikes to Zumba.
With about half of chapters reporting, we reached 25,876,184 minutes as of August 31.
30 minutes of exercise three times each week is more than enough to get us over the finish line (and get you closer to your healthy goals).
YOU! Be a part of this inspirational initiative by joining a local chapter and experiencing our affordable program, which has been proven effective in independent university studies. A loss of just ten pounds can have significant positive impacts on your health and well-being. Together we can!!!!
TOPS members are tracking minutes of physical activity (any kind counts) from May 1 until December 31, 2019. Earn minutes for activities done individually or as a chapter. Ask family and friends to join you in the challenge. Only member minutes count, but their encouragement and support will be a great contribution to your success and their own healthy lifestyle!
You can still report minutes from May through August if you haven't already. Simply add them in with your chapter's September 1 to December 31 total. Every minute counts!
January 8 is the deadline for turning in all remaining minutes for the year.
Just write them down, add them up, and send your chapter total to your Coordinator. No special form is needed. You can find your Coordinator's contact info on the back cover of every TOPS News, or look it up on Find A Meeting by tying your ZIP or postal code and scrolling down to your chapter's listing.
