Opportunities to get your kids moving!


Guilford and Forsyth County residents now have several opportunities to get moving in September.

Greensboro is currently buzzing about the Downtown Greenway, a collaborative project between the city and Action Greensboro. The Downtown Greenway is a planned four-mile walking/biking trail that will loop around the downtown. This type of project is one of only a few in the country, and will not only promote fitness for Greensboro residents, but also lend itself to the beautification of the downtown landscape as well.

This weekend, Greenway supporters are organizing the Run 4 the Greenway 8k and 1 mile walk/run. This event is for the whole family, with post-race live music, food, and entertainment. Register before Sept. 13 to save on race entry fees!

Also this weekend, Forsyth County is kicking off Step Up Forsyth!, a free eight-week community physical activity program. Beginning Sunday, Sept. 16 and continuing through Saturday, Nov. 10, Step Up Forsyth! is asking participants to commit to at least 30 minutes a day of physical activity for five days a week. Organizers hope that they can collectively log two million minutes, with 125 teams and 2,000 participants.

The Step Up Forsyth! Kick-off event will take place at the Brushy Park Greenway at Skyland Park off of East Boulevard on Sept. 16 from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. The event will include physical activity and health-education stations.
