Charity issues challenge to move for mental health

Family is a key influence on kids’ healthy movement, and the United Way is hoping to harness that influence starting Monday, Feb 21.

Its iMove for United Way challenge empowers participants to come together virtually to support their own well-being while raising money for child and youth mental health and wellness initiatives in Windsor-Essex County.

The program calls for 200 minutes of activity over two weeks and invites registrants to showcase their efforts by earning badges and bragging rights for things like:

  • hitting fundraising milestones,
  • inputting fitness and wellness activities on a profile,
  • recruiting participants, and
  • posting photos or videos to social media with the hashtag #iMove4UnitedWay.

There are even prizes to be won. Get the details and register on the United Way website.
