Move2Health Campaign Encourages 30 Minutes of Movement, 5 Days a Week

Posted: Updated:

The community-wide Move2Health campaign is getting people in and around Charlottesville on a regular workout routine.

The goal is to get to 3 million minutes of activity by December 31. Organizers say they noticed a lull after Thanksgiving and encourage people to keep moving 30 minutes a day, five days a week.

Elizabeth Beasley, a Move2Health partner, said, “We know it's going to take a long time but over time we hope that this intention to be moving every day will take hold and be part of our lives.”

To keep people motivated, the organization plans to launch another contest on Facebook this month. People will be invited to upload a photo of themselves moving, and the winner will receive a one-year membership to ACAC.
