About Us

Live Healthy Iowa, a program of the Iowa Sports Foundation, is a health initiative that brings together friends, families, businesses and communities in team-based wellness challenges designed to promote positive lifestyle change.

Since 2002, Live Healthy Iowa has helped more than 230,000 participants lose 925,639 pounds and log nearly 40 million miles of physical activity in our largest challenge, the 10 Week Wellness Challenge.

The goal of Live Healthy Iowa is to make Iowa the healthiest state in the nation!

Within Live Healthy Iowa are various challenges, providing Iowans with the tools and resources to make strides toward achieving this goal.

  • 10 Week Wellness Challenge
  • Strut Your Pup
  • Burst Your Thirst
  • The Next Step
  • Healthy Families 

Due to the success of Live Healthy Iowa, a youth initiative, Live Healthy Iowa Kids, was created in 2004, and Live Healthy America was created in 2006.
