6 Week Movement Challenge – Starting Monday, September 20 through Sunday, October 31, 2021

You are invited to join the LVAIC Institutions in a friendly but possibly fierce Movement Challenge. Each week, the results will be tallied by institution. Prizes will be randomly awarded to participants each week.

Starting on Monday, September 20th, get out there and move! Walk, run, swim, skip, do an hour of yoga, you get the idea. At the end of the week, log your movement.
