Join The Rapides Foundation's Get Healthy Cenla Challenge, a daily challenge designed to encourage people to improve their nutrition and physical activity. Our goal is for everyone to eat five or more servings of fruits and vegetables a day, and get at least 30 minutes of moderate physical activity a day, five days a week.
The August Challenge Calendar focuses on staying healthy during the hectic times in your life. Whether coming back from vacation or getting ready for school to start, August can be a hectic month. Even when your days are busy, you can use the nutrition and exercise tips on the calendar to help you plan ahead, prep and make healthy choices.

In addition to our calendar, we have even more resources to help you meet your health goals.

The challenges on our calendar are prepared by trained staff in our CMAP Healthy Lifestyle Program. They are designed to be simple and realistic. If you find the challenges too easy, try doubling the amounts. If they are too hard, don’t worry. Do what you can, and have fun!
