One in three Americans is now classified obese. To curb this growing problem, our My30 campaign is designed to inspire people to become more physically active through an online community centered on healthy living. We all need 150 minutes of physical activity each week. That’s at least 30 minutes, five times a week. Whether it’s working out at the Y or going for a run outside, everyone can get their 30 each day.
#My30 World Record Challenges
Challenge 1 – Treadmill Tuesday
Together, 1,756 community members participated in #TreadmillTuesday, a Guinness World Record attempt to achieve the greatest distance on a treadmill by a mixed team in 12 hours. Participants walked, jogged or ran at least 3,784.94 miles. The event was one of several world record challenges that are a part of #My30, a First Coast YMCA campaign to inspire people to become more physically active and encourage adults to achieve 30 minutes of exercise, five times a week. View results here.
It’s easy to join the conversation online and inspire others by sharing your 30.
