This year’s challenge had over 370 participants, and offered three different divisions: adult, family and youth.

PF3 will extend the challenge this year. All teams and or individuals will be able to start with a clean slate during the Polk Fit Challenge Saga. Participants will be able to choose new teams or participate individually.

PF3 will announce more information soon, representatives said.

Both the Polk Fit Challenge and the Polk Fit Challenge Saga are made possible by a Polk County Community Foundation Free Community Events Grant. Additional funding for the youth component of the challenge was provided by the Lois Miner Barrick Fund at the Polk County Community Foundation and the Polk County Community Foundation Board Initiative Fund.
