Plano residents are invited to share how they are staying active through the “Play in Plano Fit Family Challenge” now through Saturday.
To participate, follow the city’s parks and recreation department on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to share your photos and short video clips that show you participating in your favorite healthy activity. The hashtag #playinplano! should accompany the posts, along with a tag for the parks and recreation department, organizers said.
The city also plans to share tips and information on how to maintain a healthy lifestyle every day. The social media event is leading up to the National Family Health & Fitness Day on Saturday.
Need some ideas on how to participate? Plano’s parks and recreation department suggests taking photos or filming a short video clip of your next nature hike. You can also take a selfie during a walk or run on a trail or while playing on a basketball court. A photo of your family sharing a healthy meal you’ve prepared together is yet another idea.
Showing how you stay fit can help encourage others to do the same, organizers said. Making a point to exercise and eat healthy can also help develop new skill and habits that can last a lifetime.
