Join eXtension, The Monday Campaigns, UF IFAS Extension and learn about Move It Monday.
To warm up, attendees will be introduced to Move It Monday, a non-profit initiative designed to encourage individuals of all fitness levels to start the week with physical activity. Meghan Crowley, brand lead of Move It Monday, will share research demonstrating how a weekly Monday cue can help motivate people to adopt healthy behaviors, such as a daily walking routine.
For the main event, you will hear from Rachel Pienta, UF/IFAS Extension Agent and 4H Program Leader who recently used the Move It Monday concept, along with social media channels, to develop her own successful pilot program—Walk Across Wakulla—which challenged local residents to commit to walking the width of Wakulla over an 8-week period.
And for the cooldown, Meghan will share simple strategies and free resources that any school or organization can use to start their own Move It Monday Program to get their audiences more active.
