Lieutenant Governor Patty Judge was in Siouxland today speaking about the Lieutenant Governors’ Challenge for a healthier Iowa. The challenge is part of the public health campaign “Your Heart is in you Hands” and will take place from June 15-September 6. The 12 week program allows participants to set and track both fitness and health goals for themselves.
The programs website provides a list of activities and foods that have a point value associated with them. Any participant that racks up 140 points or more receives a medal. Before ending her speech at St. Luke’s this afternoon the lieutenant governor challenged Siouxland to have over 1,000 participants sign-up within 24 hours. She gave the same task to those in Council Bluffs this morning.
