Participate in Extension’s Spring Wellness Challenge

Ohio State University Extension Wood County is hosting the 2014 Spring Wellness Challenge, a free six
week on-line email challenge designed to help participants improve their health by encouraging physical
activity, enjoying healthy foods, and practicing sound fitness suggestions.
Those who sign up will receive two weekly e-communications from OSU Extension containing research based
nutrition, health and fitness information.
Additional tracking logs will be available for download to help participants document their progress. A
pre- and post-assessment online survey will be used to gather comments to improve future challenges and
track members’ progress.
All collected data will be kept confidential.
Participants will learn about adding more vegetables and fruits to their diet, finding more ways to move,
trying new recipes, visiting local food outlets, planting an herb/vegetable/fruit in a container or plot
garden, seasoning with herbs instead of salt, and wearing sun protection every day.
The public is invited to join this on-line challenge. Follow this link to sign-up on line:

early April.
The Challenge lasts from April 7 to May 18.
