The LiveWell Challenge, powered by LiveWellNebraska.com, is conducted by the Nebraska Sports Council a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization whose mission is to promote healthy and active lifestyle choices.

The Challenge

Nebraska organizations, businesses, colleges and schools are joining the Nebraska Sports Council in an effort to get Nebraskans to complete 150 miles or more of physical activity throughout the year.

Nebraskans can complete miles in a variety of different ways – bicycling, paddling, rolling, hiking, climbing, swimming – however you want to complete the challenge.

This challenge is more than just logging miles. It’s about connecting Nebraskans from all across the state, discovering new trails and finding events or opportunities to challenge yourself.

We encourage you to sign up today and to join other Nebraskans in completing the challenge!

Governor's Walk

On Tuesday, January 21st, Governor Pete Ricketts will promote wellness by leading the annual Governor’s Walk at the State Capitol.  Before the walk, he will hold a brief news conference at 10:30 a.m. in the north vestibule of the State Capitol on the second floor.

The purpose of the Governor’s Walk is to highlight the importance of regular exercise and a healthy diet.  The event will also encourage participants to use the LiveWell Challenge as motivation to achieve a healthier life.  Gov. Ricketts will give pointers as to how he and his family are able to stay active and will encourage Nebraskans to maintain healthy lifestyles.

Leaders from the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) will speak about Nebraska’s current health rankings and the benefits of regular exercise and a healthy diet.  Additionally, Nebraska Sports Council Executive Director Dave Mlnarik will give an update on the LiveWell Challenge, now in its 4th year.
