Prepare for trips to the produce aisle.

Kansas HealthQuest's Virtual Race Across Kansas began Wednesday. The race is a statewide physical activity and nutrition challenge where participants track their physical activity and consumption of fruits/vegetable that translate into travel miles across Kansas. Participants who complete the challenge by earning 1,000 or more miles will be entered into a prize drawing.

  • Benefits eligible state and non-state employees who are enrolled in the State Employee Health Plan or who have waived coverage in the plan
  • Retirees, spouses and dependents 18 years or older who are enrolled in the State Employee Health Plan

The competition runs from June 1-July 31. To participate in the activity and for additional information see the Kansas HealthQuest website.
