About Be Active Montgomery!
Be Active Montgomery! is an initiative begun by County Executive Ike Leggett to encourage County residents to be mindful of their activity and wellbeing. It doesn’t have to be a full out exercise program - Be Active Montgomery! encourages kids and adults to do something fun, fit and healthy every day. It could be as easy as taking a walk after a meal or riding a bike. Children are encouraged to get up off the couch and play at least an hour each day. Be Active Montgomery! wants parents to spend time throwing a ball with their kids, play on the park equipment rather than sitting on the bench, and to horse around at the pool. A healthier lifestyle isn’t all or nothing – eating a healthier meal, getting the right amount of sleep, or just spending a little time everyday doing something fun and active can be an improvement to your wellbeing.
During the summer, Montgomery County Recreation is offering a series of organized fitness events that can be accessed at Be Active Montgomery! In partnership with Montgomery County public schools, the campaign’s message will continue to be promoted to the students across the County during the next school year.
