With only a few weeks remaining in our On Your Park, Get Set, Go! contest (closes July 31st at dusk), it’s time to kick your support of your local parks in to high gear and end the competition on a high note.
Remember a single park goer could earn their park up to 22 votes per day by scanning the park’s QR code, taking a selfie and posting it to Mission Healthy Living’s Facebook page or emailing it to firstname.lastname@example.org, and voting online. On Saturdays, QR code scans are worth double and park goers have the opportunity to earn their park 32 votes on that day.
In the next couple of weeks, several of this year’s participating parks will be hosting physical activity events to promote healthy living in the parks.
