Many people say that there is nothing to do in our community. So Activate made it their 2009 mission to promote the numerous trails, parks and programs in Martinsville and Henry County. “We have a 30 page toolkit full of FREE recreational activities occurring in our community. That is a lot of choices of things to do in our area”, says Frisco.
The Activate Activity Toolkit comes with a pedometer and water bottle so that participants have the necessities needed for their walking regimen. There is no charge for the toolkit and residents may contact Activate to request a copy.
Activate didn’t stop there though, they have also unveiled a “Get Active, Get Healthy, Have Fun!” informational kiosk in Liberty Fair Mall. Partnering with Henry County Parks and Recreation, Martinsville Leisure Services, MHC Coalition for Health and Wellness and the Dan River Basin Association, Activate has filled the kiosk full of things to do – whether walking on a trail; biking in a park or participating in an aerobics program. You just have to get up, get out and get active.
