Are you ready to put the year 2020 behind?
HealthCode is inviting the global community to move forward to 2021 and participate in the January iResolve. virtual activity challenge.
“iResolve. provides everyone an opportunity to kick off 2021 on the right foot by embracing healthy living,’’ said Steve Amos, CEO and founder of the nonprofit HealthCode.
“The year 2020 has been a challenging, stressful year for so many around the world. With iResolve, we are encouraging everyone to look at making New Year’s resolutions to start the year with positive steps toward a healthier, happier 2021. As millions continue working from home to slow the spread of COVID-19, we are encouraging everyone to pick smart, measurable goals to get moving, have fun and stay safely connected,’’ Amos said.
With the iResolve January virtual challenge, participants sign up on the iResolve. registration page and enter their personal mileage goal for the month. Throughout the month, the leaderboard is updated with miles achieved globally as participants walk, run, cycle or swim to meet their goals.
Participants can start the challenge at any time during January and still enter all physical activity accomplished beginning January 1. There are no penalties for a late start in this virtual challenge. Participants can enter activity manually on the HealthCode activity tracker or automatically sync activity data with it with various activity apps and wearable activity devices.
HealthCode, based in Austin, Texas, is committed to raising awareness and promote living healthier, happier lives through physical activity, nutrition, and the good stewardship of the environment. HealthCode launched its first program – the Million Mile Month challenge in April 2014 – and since then the programs have grown.
This year, with millions continuing to work from home to stop the spread of COVID-19, HealthCode introduced a series of new virtual challenges to encourage people to keep moving and stay healthy year-round, including the Give the Gift of Health virtual challenge now underway through the end of December.
HealthCode works with businesses, educational institutions, and federal, state, and local governments to incorporate virtual events into wellness programs to engage employees and families to embrace healthy lifestyles.
Employers and other organizations can register at https://healthcode.org/organizations.
While there is no fee to sign up for HealthCode’s virtual challenges, optional donations support the delivery of HealthCode’s programming free to children, schools, military families and low-income communities.
