Colorado has one of the nation's lowest obesity rates, but more than half its residents are overweight or obese.

This week Gov. John Hickenlooper is announcing a statewide challenge using online tools, giveaways and community support to encourage Coloradans to be more active.
The Get Movin' challenge by the nonprofit organization LiveWell Colorado will have residents go online to log their daily physical activity in August. Participants who log 30 days of activity in that time, with an average of at least 30 minutes daily, will get a free shirt. Those logging 15-29 days of activity, averaging at least 30 minutes daily, will get a hat. Any participant is eligible for drawings for prizes including an Epic Pass for Vail Resorts Inc.'s ski areas.
Registration opens Thursday.
