Health Quest launches fall challenge
The Get Fit Hudson Valley six-week challenge, which begins on Saturday, Sept. 10, offers prizes to encourage participants to exercise in parks, fitness centers and other sites in Dutchess and Putnam counties.
Participants exercise for at least 30 minutes and enter their activity at getfithv.com or post about their workout on social media with the hashtag #getfithv. The more entries submitted, the better the chances to win an Apple Watch, Nutribullet Rx, CamelBak hydration pack, Dick’s Sporting Goods gift cards and other prizes. Entries on Facebook will only count if the account’s privacy settings are public.
Visit getfithv.com for a list of more than 65 check-in sites, including Foundry Dock Park in Cold Spring, Gold’s Gym Fishkill, Madam Brett Park in Beacon, Manitou Point Preserve in Garrison, Mount Beacon Park, the Putnam County Trailway, Long Dock Park in Beacon, the West Point Foundry Preserve in Cold Spring and Walkway Over the Hudson in Poughkeepsie.
Health Quest organizes the challenge each fall and spring. More than 250 people logged about 1,000 workouts during the spring challenge.
