Gundersen's six-week community physical activity challenge, Minutes in Motion, wrapped up recently with more than 3,300 participants from 18 states reporting nearly 4.7 million minutes of activity.

"Minutes in Motion has successfully encouraged and motivated participants to incorporate movement into their daily routine," says McKenna Schmidt, Gundersen wellness education specialist. "This challenge goes beyond just promoting people to be active though. It also strengthens relationships and communities. To see people participate from many different states is remarkable. We hope to continue to expand the program in the future and reach more individuals."

The ultimate goal of Minutes in Motion is to set a foundation for maintaining regular physical activity. Participants are encouraged to make their daily movement something they enjoy, whether that be walking their dog, cycling, dancing, swimming or any number of other activities.

As an added incentive, prizes are given throughout the challenge. More than 30 people netted a total of $4,000 in prizes this year. All winners have been notified.
