Ready to show your Bighorn Pride this March, 2018? Think you may forget or choose not to wear green for St. Patrick’s day? The kiwi challenge may be more your style and you will be recognized for showing your green and new, or enhanced, health changes. Best of all, the challenge is almost here!

Being in the medical field has introduced me to a variety of people with different personalities and diagnosed medical problems and diseases. I was tagged in a link on social media and wanted to share the benefits of what kiwi brings to the table. Throughout March it’s your chance to be a part of tagging Mohave Community College on social media with any creative ways you may incorporate kiwi into your life. Hashtag us on Instagram with hashtag #bighornpride follow us and tag us on Facebook, or email us your pictures, videos, or both (amartorano@mohave.edu)! Each picture or video must incorporate kiwi in some form.

You can simply email or post on social media a picture of a smoothie with kiwi in it, or get video of you making a smoothie, perhaps video of a kiwi eating competition. Each post (Picture or Video) must have a fact about kiwi, such as a recipe, or simply saying where you found a good sale on kiwi for the day or week, etc.

Remember to include the hashtag #bighornpride to be entered for a chance to win a prize at the end of the challenge. Winners will be announced in the beginning of April! You can tag or email as many pictures and or videos as you please throughout the whole month of March. Winners will be contacted by social media with a hashtag (Instagram), Tag (Facebook), or email.

To increase the health benefits of this challenge, eat THREE kiwis a day; Eat Kiwi at 9am, Noon, and 3pm.  Below are some links that you may find interesting about kiwi and your health.
