woman walkingWe'll provide the pedometers, you walk the kilometers. On April 1, 2013, the North Carolina Business Group on Health will launch Step Up Carolinas, a statewide fitness challenge in partnership with ShapeUp — and you're invited. This two-month challenge will be free to all State Health Plan members. As a participant, you will have access to an online tracking tool for an easy way to get fit with your colleagues.

The goal of the short-term fitness challenge is to promote health and wellness and raise awareness about fitness and good health through social networking. The challenge is scheduled for April 1, 2013, through May 26, 2013. Registration is set to start March 6, 2013, which is right around the corner. So whether you're a committed sole survivor or just a determined day-tripper, start talking now with your colleagues about forming teams and stand by for details.
