Warrenton hosts eight-week wellness challenge

Fitness and exercise activities will take place at Eva Walker Park and other town facilities.
Warrenton’s Parks and Recreation Department on June 3 will launch an eight-week wellness challenge.

Funded by the PATH Foundation, the county-wide Town of Warrenton Wellness Challenge “is designed to help residents develop and maintain a healthier lifestyle, with special attention to exercise goals, healthy eating habits, physical activity and mindfulness,” Assistant Parks and Recreation Department Director Cathy Zimmer said in a press release.

Free activities will include, “geocaching” at town parks, Tuesday trivia, weekly walks at the WARF, fitness classes at Rady Park and “a few surprises and pop-up events,” Ms. Zimmer said.

“I am so thrilled about this summer’s health and wellness challenge, and grateful to the PATH Foundation for supporting it,” Ms. Zimmer added. “This inaugural wellness challenge is a wonderful example of our town parks and recreation department’s on-going mission and commitment to bring fun and interactive health and wellness programs into our community.”

All participants will be given a “Ticket to Health,” which they can bring to each wellness challenge activity to collect signatures and validation codes.

With enough signatures, a “Ticket to Health” will count as an entry for the grand-prize raffle at the July 27 community picnic — the challenge’s final event. Participants also can gain ticket signatures by visiting the WARF or the Warrenton Visitor’s Center. Only town residents will be eligible for prizes.

The town also seeks three “wellness ambassadors” for the program.

“These individuals will receive a three-month membership to the WARF and will share their journeys towards good health throughout the challenge,” Ms. Zimmer said.

Ambassador candidates must submit applications by May 24. To learn more about becoming an ambassador, follow the Wellness Challenge Facebook page at @TOWWellnessChallenge, or email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) for more information.
