Thirteen individuals, representing 13 nonprofit organizations in Salt Lake County, are competing in the 2017 My Heart Challenge: Nonprofit Edition.

Their goal: improve their heart health (and win a $1,000 donation to their nonprofit organization).

The annual challenge is a 100-day content to help participants strengthen their hearts by improving their lifestyle and reducing their risk of developing heart disease. 

Throughout the My Heart Challenge, the participants 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.
