Get Fit Hudson Valley Launches

Six-week challenge includes prizes

Get Fit Hudson Valley, which continues through Nov. 7, encourages participants to walk, bike, run, skate or stretch for at least 30 minutes daily at Walkway Over the Hudson in Poughkeepsie or the 12-mile Putnam County Trailway, which begins at the Westchester border at Baldwin Place and ends at Brewster.

Participants can post photographs to Instagram or Twitter (hashtag #hqhealthyselfie) taken during their activity for a chance to win prizes such as a Nutribullet RX, a Fitbit Flex, gift cards to Dick’s Sporting Goods, subscriptions to NatureBox Healthy Snacks and Get Fit Hudson Valley T-shirts.

Other ways to log activities include the free Health Quest U app (available at iTunes and Google Play), submitting online via or mailing in a form. The challenge is sponsored by Health Quest, Walkway Over the Hudson, Putnam County Trailway and Putnam County Tourism.
