Based on participation, families earn points for a chance to win prizes during the 8-week challenge period, May 1 – June 26. The program is free and offers a mobile-friendly activity tracker, free community exercise classes, expert fitness advice and nutrition tips for families. The grand prize for the most “fit” family, is a round trip vacation to Universal Orlando!
