Humana Challenge Brings Healthy Fun to La Quinta
Activities encouraging healthy lifestyles will take place over two weeks around the Humana Challenge in partnership with the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation. Festivities continue to promote the tournament’s message of good health – and all activities around the tournament are free!
Humana Fit, Fun & Forever Week kicks off Monday, January 6 at the La Quinta Senior Center. Organized walks and daily fitness demos like yoga, Zumba, and tai chi will complement healthy food demonstrations and even grocery shopping tips. The week caps off with a healthy luncheon and bingo.
On Saturday, January 11 the Humana Well-Being Walk & Fun Fair returns to the La Quinta Community Park. The walk starts an hour later this year (9am) after an active warm-up and stretch. Along the 5-3/4 mile course there will be four rest stops with snacks and water. Get a stamp at each stop and receive a prize pack when you return! The Fun Fair will take place from 10am-2pm offering healthy activities and exhibitors, live performance by the New Sensations Party Band, the Interactive Kids Fun Zone, carnival games with prizes, and open access to La Quinta Community Fitness Center.
Humana Day at the Certified Farmers Market returns to Old Town on Sunday, January 12 from 8am-Noon. Local organic fare will be available for sale, and demonstrations by popular Valley chefs will teach us how to combine these ingredients for nourishing farm-fresh cuisine.
Humana Challenge golf takes place January 13 – 19 and both The Clinton Foundation and Humana will feature healthy on-site activities for spectators. The Walk-It program returns as an interactive app for your phone, and everyone’s steps will once again contribute to local charity donations made by the Humana Foundation. Last year 15.3 million steps resulted in a $500,000 bonus donation!
Humana’s Vitality Tour will be featured with BMI (body mass index) technology and those fun-to-spin blender bikes. The Clinton Foundation will conduct daily lectures and/or cooking demonstrations by noted health experts and chefs. Kids Day (Sunday, January 19) will host a myriad of activities to encourage young golf fans to get – and to stay – physically active.
Other themed days include Novo Nordisk Seniors’ Day (Thursday, January 16), Astellas Women’s Day (Friday, January 17), and Humana Military Appreciation Day (Saturday, January 18).
This January, La Quinta is the place to be!
