SILT — The towns of Silt and New Castle are tied in the number of LiveWell participants with 15 each as of Sunday morning, according to LiveWell’s “Get Movin’ Challenge” monitor.
A handful of Silt town employees kicked off their participation in the statewide program on Friday afternoon, May 2, at the Stoney Ridge Pavilion, where they took a short hike, stopping at exercise points along the way. The challenge is to exercise 30 minutes for 30 days in the month of May.
“We want to win this thing,” said Town Administrator Pamela Woods, with a smile. “We want everyone to come out so we can win.”
As of Saturday evening, currently leading the charge in Garfield County is Glenwood Springs with 48 participants signed up; followed by Rifle with 27; New Castle and Silt, each with 15; Carbondale, 14; and Parachute, 12.
The LiveWell Garfield County Get Movin’ Challenge Photo Contest is also currently under way through the Glenwood Springs Post Independent. A person can submit up to 10 photos through May 31 that depict people engaging in physical activities. The best pictures will be published in the paper, and winners will receive prizes. Voters are allowed one vote per day through June 15. Participants must be 13 or older to enter.
