Active Living Event

Thanksgiving Active Living 2020 

The HEAL Committee is dedicated to promoting awareness of healthy eating and active living in the Town of Frederick. Get active Frederick! We want to see how you and your family are staying connected and healthy during the Thanksgiving holiday. Pics are due by Sunday, November 29. Pictures will be used for a community collage to be shared on the Town's social media and website. Then get ready for our December challenge! 

Submit your pic for the Thanksgiving Active Living Community Collage

Ideas for Thanksgiving Active Living

1. Take a walk or run in a Town of Frederick park. Go to your favorite park or explore a new park in town. 

2. Play a game in your back yard. We would love to see a pic of your favorite family game, whether it's charades, tag or catch!

3. Meditate. We believe reducing stress through meditation or yoga is just as important for healthy active living. Many cell phone apps are available to help guide you through decluttering your mind and practicing mindfulness. 

4. Pumpkin rolling. Invent your great pumpkin race and start a new family tradition using your leftover pumpkins!
