April 1, 2013 – It may be the home stretch of year one of the STEPS Challenge, but it’s not too late to register and start participating. Click here to sign up and participate in the final challenges. If you’ve been participating in STEPS all year, make sure to finish strong with the program by participating in the final two challenges of year one, for April and May.

  • The April challenge (begins Monday, April 1), Gobble Up Guilt-Free Dinners, encourages you to pick lean sources of protein at mealtime. All month long, you’ll earn points for choosing including fish, turkey, chicken breast, tofu, soy and other lean cuts of meat over higher fat ground beef, bacon, pork, or steak.
  • The May challenge (begins Wednesday, May 1), Minimize Your Screen Time, is all about swapping time with your TV, laptop, or tablet for physical activity. Whether you’re taking a walk, playing with the kids, or even doing chores around the house, ditch your screens and get moving!

If you haven’t started participating yet, it’s not too late—STEPS will continue for the 2013-14 school year: year two officially launches at ANC Kansas City in July. Stay tuned for more details!
