Anyone can join ''Get Moving Adair County!'' in March
"Reduce the risk of developing and dying from cardiovascular disease, stroke, diabetes, and certain cancers. . . reduce the symptoms of depression and anxiety and improve your mood..."
The public is invited to get those benefits by joining a free program to gain awareness and adopt healthy habits in the new "Get Moving Adair County! Physical Activity Awareness Campaign".
Extension Agent Kelli Bonifer invites everyone to join her at the Adair County Cooperative Extension Service. The program will kick off on Monday, March 7, 2005 at 6:00 p.m.
Many people are not aware of the health benefits of physical activity. Regular physical activity has been shown to reduce the risk of developing and dying from cardiovascular disease, stroke, diabetes, and certain cancers. It can also reduce the symptoms of depression and anxiety and generally improve your mood. It is never too late or too early to become more physically active. Its time to take action against physical inactivity in Kentucky!
This kickoff is brought to you by the following community partners, Kelli Bonifer, Cooperative Extension Service, Paula Garrison and Jaime Feese, Family Resource/Youth Services Center, Jelaine Phillips, Lake Cumberland District Health Department, Ellen Zornes, Substance Abuse Coalition & Title IV Safe & Drug Free Schools and Communities, Kathy Hadley, Westlake Regional Hospital, Leann Jessee, Aerobics Instructor, Sandy Rogers and Stacey Bailey who are dedicated to improving the health of our community. This is an eight-week physical activity program that will spark some friendly competition among county residents. Teams and individuals will compete to see who can log the most Physical Activity Miles (PAM). Any aerobic activity sustained for 15 minutes will count as a Physical Activity Mile.
You can register as a family, a team of four members or as an individualand, there are two ways to register!
One is with a nominal fee of $8.00 per person (adult or child) and includes a Get Moving Adair County T-shirta goody bag filled with all kinds of good stuffand you, your family, or your team will be eligible for the Grand Prizes. Registration deadline is March 1st.
The alternate registration requires no fee, and you still receive the goody bag.
Everyone who completes the eight weeks will receive a Certificate of Completion.
Teams must have four members and will compete with other teams.
Families must have a minimum of three, will compete with other families and the average PAMs will be used to determine the winning family.
Individuals will compete with other individuals.
