July is National Parks and Recreation Month and what better way to celebrate locally than with our 2nd annual On Your Park, Get Set, Go! contest. All month long, 14 local municipalities will compete to win grant funds that will go towards improvements to their parks. You can help them do just that by visiting your favorite park and voting daily. It’s as simple as visit, vote and if you so choose, donate!
Here’s how to vote from July 1-31:
- Download a QR Code reader on your phone and scan your park’s QR code (will be posted at park) to earn 10 votes.
- Take a selfie at your park and post it to the Mission Healthy Living (MHL) Facebook page OR email it to OnYourPark@gmail.com (please choose one or the other, but not both) for 10 additional votes.
- Vote online here to earn your park two MORE votes and keep track of your park’s status in the running with real-time voting results.
Each day, a single park goer can earn their park 22 votes, 32 on Saturdays (20 points for a QR scan on Saturdays) which is a double point day! This year, participants have the opportunity to directly contribute, financially, to their park’s campaign.
Voting ends at dusk on July 31 and winners will be announced in early August. Best of luck to all the parks!
Get back to your local park and have fun enjoying its resources with family and friends.
