Active for Life is a flexible, 10-week team-based physical activity program that was developed by the American Cancer Society, Inc. It was designed to help you be more healthy and active. People who engage in moderate physical activity  on a regular basis (at least 30 minutes of activity on five or more days per week) experience many healthy benefits including:

  • Lower risk of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and other chronic diseases
  • Weight loss
  • Reduced stress
  • Increased energy

In this program you will have the ability to set individual goals, and to receive a point for each minute of physical activity. Your score counts towards individual and team goals. A Team Captain will provide program information and support to participants. They will also select a team name and logo (optional) and can invite others to join their team. They will also monitor the team and participant reports.
