The STRONG BODIES CHALLENGE was created to encourage daily activity, with a goal of completing at least 30-minutes of exercise per day through a diverse range of activities. This challenge is for people of ALL fitness levels. The mission of the STRONG BODIES CHALLENGE is to provide an opportunity for the community to kick-start their fitness, finding healthy ways to increase energy during the dark, wet, and cold winter days in Wrangell.

The SBC is also a contest of sorts. The participant who completes 30-minutes of exercise each day in the 30 day period could win an Annual Pass to the facility! The SBC provides the incentive of increased health, fitness, and confidence. Not to mention opportunities for exploring different types of exercise!

Wrangell Parks & Recreations will team up with local businesses in the community who are in support of the SBC mission, and offer up various door prize drawing goodies.
