    I love seeing the amounts in the left column go up every day. It is such a great tangible way to see the impact one person can make.

    I did this challenge last year and I absolutely loved it! I am so excited to do it again this year. This year I am focusing on my health more. I have been putting off doing my annual physical but that is one of the challenges I chose so that I can focus more on my health and what I can do to live a better life so that I can be around for a long time.
