Spring is here, the sun is coming out, and we’re all gearing up for what hopefully will be a much different summer from last year. As COVID-19 guidelines become more relaxed, it’s time to start thinking about spending more time in the sun and getting back to your favorite outdoor activities. The Trust’s LiveWell Fit program is a great way to do both — while also earning HRA funding!

It’s almost like getting paid to exercise

There are many great reasons to participate in a LiveWell Fit event:

  1. Eligible Trust participants and their covered family members can be reimbursed registration fees for up to four approved LiveWell Fit events per calendar year.
  2. You can earn up to four Mile Marker Awards as you participate in events including a sunshield buff, technical fabric t-shirt, a bonus event reimbursement, and even a GPS fitness monitor or a pair of running shoes.
  3. If you are eligible for a HRA, when you and your eligible spouse participate, you both have the chance to earn funding each year.

You don’t need to be an avid runner or cyclist to take advantage of the LiveWell Fit program. We’ve gathered a wide variety of approved events from across Washington that include walks, fun runs, and family activities. As you start making plans for the summer, think about adding a LiveWell Fit event to your calendar! While many events were cancelled in 2020 due to COVID-19, event organizers have adapted and found creative ways to make events safer, and we’re adding new events to the list each month.

Ready to get moving?

While we all know exercise is an important part of staying healthy, it can be difficult to start or maintain a routine. Many Trust participants have found that participating in regular LiveWell Fit events has helped them find inspiration and stay motivated. If you’ve ever thought about taking up running, we’ve put together a Couch to 5K training calendar to help make training easier.
