The Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government is offering citizens the opportunity to help make the city's website better. As part of the redesign, residents are asked to take a short survey. Questions include how individuals currently use the site and what features are important to them. The survey is available until June 8 at Lfucg.github.io/next in both English and Spanish.
Stunt opener for Family Fun Ride
Bike Lexington's Family Fun Ride will begin at 8 a.m. Saturday with a special stunt performance by Giant trails rider Jeff Lenosky at 9:15 a.m. The Fun Ride leaves at 10 a.m. All participants must register at the event.
The event features an 8-mile route that caters to all cycling levels and skills on two wheels. Starting at the Robert F.

Wellness at Work Challenge returns
Kentucky's Bluegrass Wellness at Work Challenge was created to give companies access to wellness initiatives as well as reward those who adapt their company initiatives to include wellness. This year, the Bluegrass Wellness at Work fitness challenge will run June 20 through Aug. 8. Participating companies compete against each other, classified within the categories of small (under 25 employees), medium (25-99), and large (100 or more). Employees will use the Bluegrass Wellness at Work app to input their activity, receiving one point for every 15 minutes of exercise they record.
The fitness challenge started as a project from the 2013 Leadership Lexington class, a program of the Greater Lexington Chamber of Commerce, aiming to create a simple challenge that includes all levels of fitness from walking to running to swimming, and counts each type of fitness equally. The goal is to promote active lifestyles by improving on each person's current activity level.
The cost for companies to join the challenge is $100; for non-profits, the cost is $75. To sign up, go to Kentucky.kvc.org/impact/bluegrass-wellness-at-work.

To sign up or get answers to any questions, contact tutoring coordinator Carol Jordan at (859) 254-4175, Ext. 22, or at email@example.com.
