Game on for 12-week chal­lenge

Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place - REXINE HAWES

Mata­mata has taken on the chal­lenge to have the fittest peo­ple of all the Mata­mata-Pi­ako towns.

Sport Waikato, to­gether with Ac­tive and Well started the 12-week chal­lenge. Mata­mata tipped the prover­bial scales in its favour, with 22 en­trants, in com­par­i­son to Mor­rinsville’s 13 and Te Aroha’s five.

This is part of the Green Pre­scrip­tion ser­vice, a Min­istry Of Health ini­tia­tive of­fer­ing healthy life­style sup­port and ad­vice, de­liv­ered by Sport Waikato’s Ac­tive and Well team.

Each week par­tic­i­pants will re­ceive an email in­clud­ing links to in­for­ma­tion, tips, ar­ti­cles and chal­lenges. You can en­ter as an in­di­vid­ual or you can en­ter as a group or busi­ness to be more com­pet­i­tive.

Mata­mata-Pi­ako Sport Waikato Dis­trict Co-or­di­na­tor Lou Beer says par­tic­i­pants could choose chal­lenges from a list and hope­fully pick a dif­fer­ent chal­lenge each time.

Each com­mu­nity usu­ally has the op­tion to at­tend a 15 minute face-to-face meet­ing for goal set­ting and mea­sure­ments.
