Providing low-cost, accessible play space is a cornerstone of Let’s Move Boise. Since 2011, we have hosted a variety of programs with the goal of getting kids and adults active. In 2013, Let’s Move Boise is focused on support of Walk 150, a sesquicentennial project.
The Mayor has issued a challenge for citizens to walk 150 miles in 2013. Log your miles at http://www.Walk150.org Kids and adults who reach 150 miles are eligible for prizes!
Local schools are competing for prizes to reward the most miles and highest percentage of participants in spring and fall contests.
To encourage more adults to participate, Let’s Move Boise is coordinating a business challenge from June 1-Nov. 30, 2013. Learn more at www.walk150.org.
