Wyman’s of Maine, the Milbridge-based blueberry company, has partnered with the Women’s Health Resource Library to create a fitness challenge. The Wyman’s Fitness Challenge is designed to get people moving and fit as well as raise money for the Milbridge Commons Playground, slated to open this summer. The overall goal is to get the community to log at least 10 million steps. Those steps will translate to a $5,000 donation from Wyman’s toward the playground. So far, WHRL has raised $30,000 of the $60,000 needed.
The kick-off event will be the Elaine Hill Memorial 5K walk/run scheduled for May 4th. Team Wyman’s will host a blueberry smoothie tent to get people started logging those steps. The challenge will run from April 15th through May 30th. Sign up at whrl.challengerunner.com. Users can enter their steps manually online via an honor system. Fitbit and other fitness device users can synch their steps automatically. The WHRL has a limited number of pedometers available; contact us at 546-7677, first come, first served.
