H-E-B is inviting Texans to get moving with Ready, Set, Move!, a sweepstakes contest for community members who log 150 minutes of exercise per week during the months of September and October.
The Healthy at H-E-B team will help with wellness tips and online videos.
Participants who complete the Ready, Set, Move! challenge will be entered to win prizes, including a 12-month gym membership, fitness equipment and H-E-B gift cards.
Online registration began Sept. 3 at Healthy at H-E-B.
Once registered, individuals will be challenged to log at least 150 minutes of physical activity per week through Oct. 28.
Adults need a minimum of 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise per week, yet one-third of adults do not meet this recommendation, according to the Centers for Disease Control.
Participants can earn one entry into the sweepstakes for each week they log at least 150 minutes of exercise. Prizes are as follows:
• Grand prize: 12-month gym membership and fitness equipment package, valued at $1,000.
• Second prize: Fitness equipment package, valued at $500
• Five prizes: $100 H-E-B gift card
• 10 prizes: $50 H-E-B gift card
• 20 prizes: $20 H-E-B gift card
Participation will also benefit the Healthy at H-E-B Community Challenge, an eight-week competition that pits Texas cities and towns against each other to see who can mobilize the most healthy action.
No purchase is necessary to enter. Always consult a physician before beginning an exercise program.
