The Nebraska Sports Council is encouraging families across Nebraska to adopt healthier lifestyles in the first-ever LiveWellNebraska.com Family Challenge, which runs June 4 through July 16.
Thousands of prizes are up for grabs for families that accumulate at least 50 points per week.
Major drawing prizes include a Colorado rafting adventure, a Wyoming ski trip, a weekend at Worlds/Oceans of Fun, a Niobrara River tubing excursion, a handful of Nebraska State Park getaways and a Traeger Grill from the Nebraska Pork Producers.
Registration is now open. Click here to sign up.
The cost is $25 per family, and each family receives up to four t-shirts, with additional shirts available for $5 each. The first 3,500 kids registered will receive free meal certificates from Mr. Goodcents or Applebee’s. Families also get access to a wealth of resources and weekly tips to help them organize healthy behaviors into busy family schedules.
“Looking at the battle against childhood obesity, we need to facilitate parents modeling healthy behaviors,” Nebraska Sports Council Executive Director Dave Mlnarik said.
To earn points toward the prize drawing, families will track healthy behaviors and log them weekly on the LiveWellNebraska.com Family Challenge website. Go here for more information.
Winning families will be announced July 20 at the Cornhusker State Games Opening Ceremonies at Seacrest Field in Lincoln.
The Family Challenge is sponsored by LiveWellNebraska.com and conducted by the Nebraska Sports Council, which conducts the Cornhusker State Games and Live Healthy 100-Day Challenge.
