Start R.I.G.H.T. originated from the Fit Fresh & Fun Initiative beginning in 2011, that aims to foster healthier communities and make Riverside more aware of healthy opportunities within the city.
In the past, The Challenge has been a 3-month fit-filled journey, however, it will now be condensed to 6-weeks. This in turn will encourage participation throughout the entire process. The ultimate goal of the Start R.I.G.H.T. Challenge is for participants to adopt healthy behaviors such as: increase consumption of fruits and vegetables, decrease consumption of saturated fats and sugar, to meet 150 minutes of physical activity per week (minimum) and to improve overall health.
The Challenge will include weekly education classes based on nutrition and exercise in both English and Spanish, coupled with family-friendly physical activities. In addition, Start R.I.G.H.T. will have family-focused activities that challenge everyone to get active together.
The Challenge will have five prizes: $200 for the Most Physically Active Family, $100 for the Most Physically Active Participant, $100 for the Participant with the Most Fruit and Vegetable Intake, $100 for the Participant with the Greatest Decrease in Saturated Fat Consumption and $100 for the Participant with the Greatest Overall Health Improvement.
The Start R.I.G.H.T. Challenge will end with jumpers, games, music, and fun to celebrate the hard work and perseverance of participants throughout the 6-week Challenge.
