Strut Your Pup Challenge

May 2024
Registration opens March 2024

Cost: $5 per participant

Team up with your pup and get moving!
Live Healthy Iowa has gone to the dogs! Well, not completely, but we have created a challenge to get you out and active with your pet during Iowa's cool, spring weather. Studies have shown that people who regularly walk dogs may benefit from lower blood pressure, have a trimmer waistline, and suffer from fewer chronic diseases.  Dogs are a great accountability partner; keeping you active and on schedule.

How does it work?
1. Track your minutes walking, running, or actively playing with your canine companion. 
2. Record your team's activity time using your personal online dashboard (or via the mobile app).
3. Watch your progress on the challenge leaderboard against others in your community, and across the state. 

Who is on a team?
The team for Strut Your Pup consists of you and your pet! For this challenge, you do not need to create a team of 2-10 individuals.

Challenge participants receive:

  • A personal online dashboard
  • Weekly email tips with canine-focused content to keep you engaged and motivated
  • Virtual learning opportunities with local experts
  • Access to tools and resources
  • Opportunity to win prizes for you and your pet
