Most taking part in challenge are womenThe 2010 New Year, New You challenge has 602 participants made up of 32 business teams and seven Friends and Family Teams. There are fewer participants than last year, but according to the Go Red Survey Monkey, almost 40 percent are new to the challenge. We also discovered that about 80 percent are female and 87 percent are in the 25- to 55-year-old age group. The fact that the majority of participants are women is good news, because studies have shown that women can have a positive effect on the food choices the rest of their family makes.
