Healthy Community Challenge

Saturday, August 8th the Partners for Active Living (PALS) celebrated the end of the Healthy Community Challenge and drew the winner for the trip to Myrtle Beach.
Over 100 people showed up to enjoy music by Joe Washrag and food from Subway. The Healthy Community Challenge began in May and had over 400 participants. Participants did different activities in the community to expose them to the great resources that are available for recreational activities. Each time participants completed a level they received a prize. Those completing all 3 levels had their names put in a drawing for a trip to Myrtle Beach for 4 people.
