In its second year, The Challenge will be offering free new interactive tools and team resources, as well as nutrition and diet tips, contests and prizes to make the website an exciting 'go-to' resource for its hundreds of thousands of participants. Thousands have sent in personal success stories to share as Featured Challengers on the website. Tens of thousands have joined one of nearly 9,000 Challenge Teams, and Challenge Leader Kits are now available for those who take on the responsibility of organizing their own team. Also this spring, new online surveys will give everyone a chance to share their views and find out what's on the mind of participants across the Challenge community.
