The Start R.I.G.H.T. Challenge will be starting on March 14th, 2015!
The Start R.I.G.H.T. Challenge is a city-wide, healthy-living campaign and challenge that aims to increase health knowledge and access to fitness and educational opportunities for Riverside Residents. The Challenge is completely FREE for people who live and work in Riverside to take part in! Residents who participate in the challenge have a chance to win a grand prize of $500. This year those that complete the challenge, by having both an entry weigh-in and exit weigh-out, are entered in a drawing to win $300. We will be giving away two $300 prizes.
In addition, the neighborhood who logs the most activity in 2015 will be crowned “Riverside’s Fittest Neighborhood” by Mayor Rusty Bailey.
