WAUSEON - The 2014 Fall Challenge is 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. It starts Monday, Sept. 8.

Those who sign up will receive two weekly e-communications from Ohio State University Extension containing research based nutrition, health and fitness information.

A tracking log will be available to 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 organic / natural foods, super foods, gluten-free and whole grain foods, as well as including calcium and fiber in your diet. In addition to nutrition information, participants will also receive fitness tips to incorporate exercise into your daily schedule.

Those interested in joining this on-line challenge can follow this link to sign-up on line: http://go.osu.edu/Fultonfall14. You will be enrolled and begin receiving e-communications the week of Sept. 8. The challenge lasts from Sept. 8 to Oct. 19.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact your OSU Extension Educator in Fulton County, Melissa Welker, at welker.87@osu.edu or by calling (419) 337-9210.
