To be held April 23 through 29, Active Week West Virginia is a week in which businesses, organizations, schools, communities and other groups across the state will host events and activities that promote physical activity.
Our hope is that this week can be a statewide campaign, shared by everyone with skin in the physical activity and public health game.
In the last few weeks I have been highlighting events in each region of the state. This week I will highlight the eastern and northern panhandles. (To see what’s happening in North Central WV and Southern WV check out those blogs or visit activeweekwv.com)
What’s Happening in the Eastern & Northern Panhandles
The Eastern Panhandle covers Grant, Mineral, Hampshire, Morgan, Berkeley, Jefferson, Hardy, and Pendleton counties.
The Northern Panhandle covers Hancock, Brooke, Ohio, Marshall, Wetzel, and Tyler counties.
Currently, we have 4 events happening in the Eastern & Northern Panhandles during Active Week WV, ranging from a school based activity to 5K walk/runs. There’s something for all skill and fitness levels. Some are free and kid friendly.
I encourage you to go to activeweekwv.com and pick out your favorite activity to engage with, one you’ve never tried, and one you can take a friend or family member along to.
When you participate, don’t forget to share it with us using #ActiveWeekWV
We’d love to one day soon have events in every county!
