Henderson Wants You to “Lighten Up”
The City of Henderson Parks and Recreation is offering a chance for residents to get healthy and fit in the new year. Their Lighten Up Fitness Challenge is free and open to anyone who “lives, works, learns or plays” in Henderson. The weigh in starts and ends this week, January 13th – 17th and participants receive a free 1-week fitness room pass at any of the participating Henderson recreation centers. So, are you ready to lighten up?
The Lighten Up Fitness Challenge starts January 13th and ends April 4th. In order to participate, you must weigh in by Friday, January 17th from 6:00 am – 8:00 am or 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm at the following locations: Black Mountain Recreation Center, Downtown Recreation Center, Henderson Multigenerational Center, Silver Springs Recreation Center and Whitney Ranch Recreation Center. Weigh in at Valley View Recreation Center is from 8:00 am to 10:00 am or 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm and 6:00 am to 8:00 pm at Heritage Park Senior Facility. Weighing in weekly, after the initial weigh in, is optional but it will help you to accurately track your progress and you’ll be eligible for weekly prizes (or you can e-mail results). You must be 14 or older to participate.
Final weigh out will be the week of March 31st and ends on April 4th (at the same times and locations of the initial weigh in). Recognition and prizes will be given for most “lightened up” according to each age bracket. An awards reception will be held at the Heritage Park Senior Facility.
