Eight Utah families are competing in the 2016 My Heart Challenge: Family Edition, seeing to improve their heart health (and win 12 monthly all-admission/excursion family packs to Boondocks Food and Fun). The annual challenge is a 100-day contest to help participants strengthen their hearts by improving their lifestyle and reducing their risk of developing heart disease.
Throughout the My Heart Challenge, the families will receive coaching and counseling from cardiac experts at the Intermountain Medical Center Heart Institute - including exercise specialists, dietitians, and heart experts - to help them make positive, long-lasting healthy changes to their lives. They'll also go through health assessments and testing at the beginning and end of the challenge to measure their accomplishments.
