Healthy Active Arkansas
Arkansas Auditor of State

The Capitol GO! Challenge, which has alternated between a steps (regular legislative session) and healthy hydration (fiscal session) challenge, aims to engage state policymakers to stimulate local change and advance the priorities of Healthy Active Arkansas — an initiative launched by Gov. Asa Hutchinson in 2015 to encourage and enable healthier lifestyles. The leader of the two-time team winner of the 2018 and 2019 Capitol GO! Challenges, Auditor of State Andrea Lea, took some time to give us insight, motivation, and advice on how to foster healthy habits and encourage staff participation in the challenge.
