Clio non-profits walk to earn Wellness Grant, volunteers needed to join teams

Posted: Updated:
CLIO (WJRT) - (05/15/14) - More than $7,000 in Community Health Grants will go to the Clio non-profits who get up and get active over the next few months.

It is called "Everything Clio! Blues Community Challenge." The challenge allows people to register with their favorite team - The Clio Human Services Team, The Clio Sports Complex Team, The Clio Fire Department Team, The Clio School's Back-Pack Team, or the Clio Sports Boosters Team.

Once you're registered you start walking. Whether you are walking the dog, jogging in the park, or just taking a stroll, you can log the hours online in support of your team. When the 12 weeks are over, each organization will win a portion of the Wellness Grant based on how many miles were logged by their team.

Organizers hope people use the event as an opportunity to start a healthier lifestyle.

"Research has shown that it takes 21 days to develop a habit, whether it's good or bad, so if we can keep them going those first 21 days, we're banking on the fact that we'll keep them active after," said
Shelley L. DuFort, Blue Cross Blue Shield.

The challenge kicks off May 31 at the Family Expo in Clio. To learn more about the challenge click here.
