Are you up to the Woman Challenge?

What is the Woman Challenge? When is it?

The Woman Challenge is a part of the year-long Woman Activity Tracker program. Its launch will kick off the 10th annual National Women's Health Week (May 10-16, 2009). The Woman Challenge encourages women to commit to 8 weeks of setting and meeting personal physical activity goals. You can take the Woman Challenge pledge at any time between May 10 and June 28, 2009.

During the Woman Challenge, each week that you meet or exceed your personal physical activity goals, you will receive a virtual Woman Challenge Trophy. Earn 8 trophies in 8 weeks and receive a certificate of completion! From May 10 to August 22, 2009 you will receive weekly e-mail newsletters with tips on staying motivated. There will also be weekly quizzes to test your knowledge of fitness and nutrition and give you a boost towards your weekly goal.

How do I join the Woman Challenge?

After registering for the Woman Activity Tracker, visit the My Woman Challenge page to take the Woman Challenge pledge. Select a start date for your challenge from the drop-down list. You can start your Challenge on any Sunday between May 10 and June 28, 2009.

Do you mail Woman Challenge certificates of completion?

No, we do not mail printed copies of Woman Challenge certificates of completion. If you earn 8 virtual Woman Challenge trophies in 8 weeks, you will be able to download your certificate and print it from home at the end of your Challenge.
