It’s that time of year again! The 2019 Health First Mayors’ Fitness Challenge is slated to kick-off on February 2nd! Eleven Mayors in Brevard are challenging their citizens to get involved in a healthy competition – the Health First Mayors’ Fitness Challenge. Each Mayor will assemble the largest possible group of people from the community to form a city team. Everyone who joins for a municipality is considered part of that Mayor's "team." All you have to do is start moving and track it!
Satellite Beach will be hosting a kick-off walk this year at the David R. Schechter Center at 9 am on Saturday, February 2nd! Join your fellow participants for a 1.6 mile walk or run and meet vendors before the walk to find lots of opportunities to keep yourself moving for the challenge too! See full flyer here.
Satellite Beach staff has been working on another fun event this year, a City Scavenger Hunt! Join us for a fun, fitness inspired team scavenger hunt around the city starting at City Hall at 9 on Saturday, March 9th. Teams of 4-6 people will follow clues or solve riddles to discover as many destination points as quickly as possible by foot, bike, skateboard or any other ‘exercise vehicle’ you chose. Additional points may be earned by completing a fitness task at each destination. Pre-register at playsatellitebeach.org or in person at the DRS. Cost is $10 per team.
The 8-week challenge will end on March 30, 2019 and still feature the “Great Weight-Off” component. The individual top weight loser (calculated by percentage of weight lost) during the 8-weeks will win a $500 cash prize. To enter one or both of the challenges, visit uwbrevard.org.
An age-friendly community that is designated for people to stay active, engaged, and healthy with dignity and enjoyment as they age.
The City of Satellite Beach is partnering with AARP to conduct this survey among residents age 50 and over to understand your views and what you'll need as you get older to make our community a great place to live, work, and play. Residents younger than 50 are also encouraged to respond, as all responses will help developed the City of Satellite Beach Age-Friendly Action Plan. Participants can enter to win a $100 Amazon gift card!https://gannettpublishing.co1.qualtrics.com
