Plymouth kicks off Step to it Challenge with Mayor Jeff Wosje
The City of Plymouth will compete in the annual Step to It Challenge May 1-28 and encourages residents to participate. Plymouth will defend its title as last year’s Most Active Community.
This four-week competition encourages physical activity as it pits 24 northwest metro communities against one another. Bragging rights and a trophy will go to the communities in the following categories:
- Most active community
- Most active residents
- Most actively engaged community
Virtually every action counts – walking, biking, running, cleaning, gardening or playing with the children. Registered participants can track their daily activity using a pedometer or conversion chart on the Step to It website, steptoit.org.
Twins tickets will be awarded to the most active residents in each community. Those who register will be entered for drawings to win Minnesota Twins tickets for Friday, July 19.
The challenge is free. To register or for more information, call 612-348-5618 or visit steptoit.org.
