A virtual challenge issued to women of Louisiana to promote
both physical and mental health in a time when both are a rare commodity is a
good challenge indeed. The Allstate Sugar Bowl Crescent
is a 10k race you may be familiar with, and it is all but impossible to have
lived through recent times without having heard Ochsner's name mentioned multiple times. The
two health-oriented organizations' joint effort to help women with staying fit
will begin on December 1 and end on January 14. Participating women will be
logging their miles on RunSignUp.com, and can participate in either a
30-mile one-person challenge goal or a 100-mile team challenge goal.
will be providing health tips in a work-to-unlock format: Every five miles you
run and log will net you health tips, as well as special deals and prices on
Ochsner nutrition plans. The goal of this event is to help spotlight the
importance of women's physical and mental well-being, as well as a broader goal
of simply promoting activity in a time when many have been involuntarily and
excessively sedentary. Dubbed the "Me-Time Challenge," this athletic undertaking
will cost $35 per person to participate, and any proceeds will be donated
directly to the Women's Wellness and Survivorship Center.
Any method of physical activity you
may choose to accrue your miles is accepted, provided it is still exercise. Biking,
swimming, walking, running, and so on are all valid methods of participation. While
the event runs from the start of December to mid-January, the registration
period ends on January 1. Those interested in registering should visit ccc10k.com for more information and the
necessary forms to fill out to take part.
