The past couple bulletins have focused on inspiring your departments to promote active living and healthy eating challenges, such as the NPHW “We Can Do Better Contest” by the American Public Health Association and The Ellen DeGeneres #GimmeFive Dance Challenge. The warmer weather has made it perfect to help motivate your community to participate in activities that lead to healthier lifestyles, not only through national challenges, but on a daily basis.
Now NCRPA is going to challenge you and your departments. If you remember, last summer NCRPA started a social media campaign calledMe in My Park, challenging people to upload pictures to Facebook, Instagram and Twitter of themselves, or groups of people enjoying time in a park! We are reinstituting the challenge this summer, but with an added feature, we want to see you showing how parks can be a major part of active lifestyles! If you would like to view more details regarding the NCRPA #MeinMyPark challenge, then please read my current blog: http://tinyurl.com/nxwkz7a
Lastly, our next webinar, Wednesday April 29th, will be hosted by Beth Farrell, Thomasville Parks & Recreation. She will be providing information regarding the Memorial Park Community Garden project. Please register here: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/6653865405597801729
Let’s inspire our communities to become more active during the spring and summer months. If you have any questions or ideas about summer program ideas, then please email us or submit them on the wellness site here: (firstname.lastname@example.org,http://www.ncrpa.net/?Wellnesssub).
