100 Mile Challenge

Here's the full press release:

Montgomery County Recreation will kick off the 100 Mile Challenge at the Holiday Park Senior Center, 3950 Ferrara Drive, Wheaton. The event is scheduled for Saturday, January 21 from 2 to 4 p.m. Featured speakers will include Nicky and Bob Lowry who will discuss their adventures climbing Mt. Everest this past spring.

The event will include a healthy tasting reception, fitness activities, a Zumba dance group activity and body fat analysis. All participants will receive a T-shirt, water bottle and swag bag at the event. 
Montgomery County Recreation is committed to healthy living through healthy eating and physical activity. The department formed the Wellness Fitness and Performance Institute to provide a framework for all of its health, wellness, fitness, and performance initiatives. The wellness mission is to increase the physical activity and healthy eating practices of residents. 

Residents are encouraged to participate individually; as a group with family, friends or coworkers; and even to bring the dog. The goal of the program, which is self-reporting, is to complete 100 miles (or more) in 100 days. Twenty minutes of continuous physical activity also counts as one mile. Tracking logs will be sent to everyone who registers at using activity number 26595

Prizes will be awarded weekly throughout the 100 days, culminating in a Move More Montgomery Festival with grand prizes on May 6 from noon to 4 p.m. at the Bauer Drive Community Recreation Center, 14625 Bauer Drive, Rockville.
