Let’s face it, we all have some bad habits we’d like to change, but many of us are seldom motivated enough to replace our poor choices with better ones.
Well, let’s see if a $5,000 grand prize can’t get you motivated to get up and get moving. This is the top prize in the 2017 YOLO Wellness Challenge, a yearlong competition designed to help Antelope Valley residents eat right, stay active and live well.
The YOLO Lancaster Wellness Challenge is open to all local residents 13 and over and rewards you for making healthy choices in your daily life. Choose a salad instead of a burger for lunch. You’ll earn points for eating right. Spend some time at the gym. Rack up even more point. Pick up some fresh vegetables for dinner at the farmers market, and you’ll soon see how fast these rewards can add up. We’ll even reward you for visiting your doctor regularly, attending parenting classes or getting help to lower your blood pressure.
Joining the program is quick and easy. Simply click here or call 661-942-4719 to sign up. We'll send you an email inviting you to a quick assessment at Antelope Valley Partners for Health (AVPH), the chief organizer of YOLO Lancaster. At that time, AVPH staff will go over the program and provide you with a packet with permission forms and few questions to be filled out. Then you’ll be on your way toward earning rewards and valuable prizes as you adopt healthier habits.
While it's easy to join and even easier to participate. Anytime you do something to improve your health, simply snap a selfie of yourself doing it and send it, along with the email address associated with your account to email@example.com. Alternately, you can simply save your receipts and bring them by AVPH.
Each time you partake in a YOLO activity and report your progress, you’ll receive points. You can accumulate points and exchange them for great prizes.
If you earn the most overall points between now and December 21, 2017, you’ll walk away $5,000 richer for exercising your healthy habits. The current teen competition runs through April 28, 2017, with winner(s) being announced in May 2017.
So what are you waiting for? Sign up now! Start earning points and learn to eat right, stay active and live well with YOLO Lancaster.
