This challenge was created in an effort to raise awareness of mental health issues, including depression. When left untreated depression can lead to suicide. Open discussions about depression and suicide can help create an environment where those suffering can be more comfortable with reaching out for help and can provide friends and loved ones with the resources they can use to offer support and understanding. The Mind Over Matter Movement Challenge will directly benefit the Will to Live Foundation (see below for more information about this local 501(c)(3) public charity).
Join our Mind of Matter Movement Challenge! Run, walk, bike, hike, yoga, play tennis, work out at the gym, or any activity you choose to achieve YOUR goal! Begin March 15th, and track your ACTIVITY MINUTES through May 15th. This is not a distance challenge but instead, a challenge to help you accumulate minutes participating in a combination of physical activities. You can do the challenge solo, with a partner, or with a team of up to 4 participants. It's up to you how you divide up the minutes. You can get your activity minutes in anywhere, anytime! See below for more info on that.
Partners and teams of 3 or 4 can divide the minutes up however they'd like. You will set your personal goal in your profile.
