2 Your Health Fit Family Challenge "How fit is your family?"

Posted: Updated:
 The Fit Family Challenge is a healthy lifestyle program for South Carolina families.  The program motivates families to get moving and create healthier lifestyles. To participate, families register online and track activities for a chance to earn points and win prizes. The Fit Family Challenge is in partnership with Coca-Cola, CVS and the South Carolina Hospital Association and Medical University of South Carolina.

The last day to earn points online is July 10, 2014.

A family is at least one child under age 18 and one adult in the same household, including grandparents caring for children. Participants under 18 years old must be included in a 'family' registration account with at least one adult participant.

To qualify for prizes you must be registered! Register online to begin. To qualify for the Grand Prize drawing, you must also earn at least 100 points by logging your activities in our online Activity Tracker. The more you participate and track your activities online, the more chances you have to win. An additional entry in the drawing is contributed for every 100 points earned.

Prizes for the 2014 Fit Family Challenge vary by region. For details of the weekly prizes in Lowcountry Parent magazine regions,  you can check the Rules and Guidelines.

Grand Prize: A family vacation to two amazing theme parks at Universal Orlando® Resort

Register online and begin entering your activities in our Activity Tracker. Each time you log an activity, you earn points towards the grand prize drawing.

Exercise or be active for at least 150 minutes per week [100 points]
Practice healthy habits daily/weekly [10 points/habit]
Healthy habits are defined in the Online Activity Tracker.
Attend special events and fitness or wellness classes [100 points/class or event]  
There is no limit to how many classes you can attend.
Free class coupon available for download after registration.
Restrictions may apply.

Families are considered one unit. Family points are combined and entries are added for each 100 points earned as a family, or individual, to the Grand Prize drawing in June.

Parents can download a Kids Activity Tracker, so young children can get in on the fun. Post it on your fridge and let them fill it out each week, then post the healthy habits in your family account for more points. Kids can attend some events, too! (Age restrictions may apply.)

Weekly and monthly prize winners are still eligible for the grand prize drawing if they qualified. (To qualify families must earn at least 100 points.)

Attend as many fitness classes and special events as possible. Each even or class attended earns you 100 points. Note: You must receive an event code and enter it into the system with the event name to receive the bonus points.

The Fit Family Challenge will teach you a lot about fitness and good nutrition. You can keep it up throughout the year. Also, you can visit each of the parenting websites for healthy tips each month.
