BILLINGS - Registration for the inaugural Shape Up Montana Jump Start program is underway for launch during the month of November.
Shape Up Montana (SUM) is a team-based healthy lifestyle program of the Big Sky State Games that helps Montanans to be more physically active and make healthier nutrition choices. Jump Start will have similarities to the traditional three month program but will be featuring its own unique attributes consisting of teams of two people within the time frame November 1- 30.
The program is focusing on completing challenges rather than accumulating miles. The program will have you to pick a 30 day streak goal which can be “Steps/Day, Walk/Run or 30 Minutes of Movement.” Prizes will be awarded to those who complete the 30 day streak. In addition, there will be weekly challenges to win Big Sky State Games medals.
The cost for the one-month program is $20 per team until October 15. The price increases to $30 per team starting October 16. Everyone who enters receives a Big Sky State Games T-shirt.
Online registration and information are available at shapeupmontana.org or by calling (406) 254-7426.
