Thomas Jefferson Health District/Move2Health Press Release

(Charlottesville, Va.) – In an effort to engage more Nelson County residents in an active lifestyle, Move2Health partners will hold an informational booth at Drumheller's Orchard Apple Festival on September 28, 2013 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 1130 Drumheller Orchard Lane in Lovingston. 

Information, resources and other materials will be available for anyone who would like to join the challenge, as well as for those who have already joined. "We are looking forward to being at the Apple Fest and locally promoting such a worthwhile project," says Peggy Whitehead, Move2Health partner and Executive Director of the Blue Ridge Medical Center. "It is exciting to see those minutes build on the Move2Health Challenge web page and we're hopeful the total minutes moved in Nelson County will rise even more after Saturday's event!"

Move2Health is a community campaign that encourages residents of the Thomas Jefferson Health District to add more physical activity to their daily routines. Participants log their minutes of activity on the Move2Health website. The campaign's current challenge is for everyone to move 30 minutes a day, five days a week, with an ultimate challenge goal to reach one million minutes moved by December 31, 2013.

Residents living and/or working in the City of Charlottesville, Albemarle, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa, and Nelson counties can register for Move2Health online at www.Move2HealthCentralVa.org and download the mobile app from Google Play or the iTunes Store.
