Family Health and Fitness Day 2022
Movement and fitness are so important and parks, playgrounds, recreation and outdoor fitness spaces are the perfect places to move. Getting everyone moving is crucial to the physical and mental wellbeing of the community and gives us healthy ways to connect, engage and play together.
In our home community of Fond du Lac, WI, we’re celebrating Family Health and Fitness Day on Saturday, June 11 at Walleye Weekend – a local festival held every June in the beautiful Lakeside Park! Some of the Burke “family” is taking on the five-mile run and we’re sponsoring a scavenger hunt that provides outdoor enjoyment for the entire family. The Burke playgrounds and the ALL-NEW MOVMNT™ provide a place for children and families to find movement and fitness that is also playful and FUN. MOVMNT is as the name implies – a way everyone to compete with each other or themselves on this outdoor electronic game that you can only play by moving and using your agility.
The advantages of movement and time spent outdoors are endless and include a variety of benefits from increased focus and better mental health to healthier weight and increased cardiovascular and strength. Keeping moving and sticking to a schedule is easiest when the entire family and community is in on it too! A multigenerational space with an outdoor fitness course, a series of trails, open spaces and play environments are all great ways to make movement fun and approachable for people of all ages and abilities. Learn more about some of our favorite spaces and be inspired to plan yours today!
