2018 Mayor's Fitness Challenge

What is the Mayor's Fitness Challenge?

The Health First Mayors' Fitness Challenge is an initiative put on by United Way of Brevard to get people up, moving and more active. The challenge runs from February 3 – April 28, 2018.  Twelve cities are participating and will be competing to be named the “Most Fit City” in Brevard County. Each individual participant will track their physical activity by logging the number of minutes/hours during the duration of the challenge. The city with the most minutes logged (collectively) will win. Stay tuned for updates on events that will be scheduled in our area to help get us all moving! The Cities of Satellite Beach and Indian Harbor Beach have partnered to create a full calendar of events to keep you busy!
