Let’s face it, we’ve all had too much couch time, Netflix binging, and snacks recently. With that in mind, we’re kicking off The Longest Day MOVEment Challenge. We’re inviting all of North Carolina to join some activity good for our body and brain health. Doesn’t matter whether you run in your neighborhood, on your treadmill, clip in for a ride on your bike, or simply work to see those steps increase on your fitness tracker. Join us in turning those miles into a MOVEment.
