(Boston) – Join us for a free breakfast as we kick off the second “BU Sargent College Healthy Lifestyle Challenge” in the BU Sargent College lobby at 635 Commonwealth Avenue on Monday, October 3 from 7:30-10 a.m. Stop by to receive a free breakfast bag and to find out more about how you can be a part of the Healthy Lifestyle Challenge this year!

The Healthy Lifestyle Challenge is a fun way to encourage the greater BU community to incorporate healthy habits into everyday life. Last year, nearly 1200 people joined the Challenge but we need your help to make the second year even more successful than the first!

When you join the Challenge, you’ll receive a new challenge via email every two weeks that we ask you to try to implement into your life on your own time. All we ask is that you log on to the website after each challenge to let us know if you were able to make it part of your life and we’ll enter you in the bi-weekly raffle.

Challenges are lifestyle tips, changes or recommendations created by BU Sargent College students and faculty members that promote healthy living. Although they are small, easy steps, they can make a big difference in energy level, weight, overall health and well-being. Challenges come from all program areas in the College including health sciences, communication disorders, nutrition, athletic training, physical therapy, occupational therapy and rehabilitation counseling.

In addition to the physical benefits of each challenge, you’ll have many chances to win prizes along the way, be invited to attend various events and will receive a gift at the end for taking the Challenge.

The Healthy Lifestyle Challenge is open to everyone including all BU students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends as well as anyone else in the greater community interested in participating.
