GET ACTIVE AT HOME

Parents are the most influential force in a child’s life. Stock your kitchen with healthy, whole foods including lots of fruits and vegetables. Plan family activities that are active and fun. Model for your child the healthy lifestyle you want them to live!

EXERCISE TOGETHER

Running is an exercise you can take with you anywhere! Visit a local park where you can run before taking a break at the playground or spend the day at the zoo jogging among the animals. Don’t forget that you can run with your family while on vacation and explore new routes and sites.

Triad area families are invited to visit GO FAR Healthy Places Maps, 5K training routes which are scattered throughout High Point. In partnership with the Foundation for a Healthy High Point and the City of High Point Parks and Recreation Department, GO FAR developed run/walk maps in area neighborhoods. Descriptions of proper stretching before and after your training and information about healthy snacks and hydration are included. So grab your family and friends to get out and get active!
