CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The YMCA launched their Strong Challenge on October 18th. The free challenge is a nationwide event to encourage Americans to be active.

Participants are encouraged to engage in 150 minutes of exercise each week. Those wishing to enroll in the challenge can text the word STRONG to 844-889-6222. Once participants are signed up they have access to many resources, including a fitness tracker and zoom sessions to connect with others.

“People are more likely to complete something and stay with something if they have, we call them “accountabil-a-buddies” so now instead of just one person locally who might be your accountability partner, you have people from across the nation that are trying to achieve the same goal as you to get stronger inside and out,” said Risa Phillips, the Senior Membership Director at the YMCA of Natrona County.

The Strong Challenge is expected to last for 30 days.
