RiseVT's Rise to the Challenge Combines Three Events

BENNINGTON, Vt. — Three events are being held May 17-19 to encourage all, especially kids, to kick off the warm weather with physical activity.

"Our area is so rich with fun and interesting opportunities to move," Bennington County RiseVT Program Coordinator Andrea Malinowski said. "This set of three events highlights some of those great resources and encourages families to increase their physical activity."

The first event, planned for 6 p.m. Friday, May 17, is a hike at the Mile-Around Woods. It starts from John G. McCullough Free Library in North Bennington. This free and family-friendly walk will take participants around the Park-McCullough House or the Mile-Around Woods.

Attendees to the hike will receive a flyer on which they can collect signatures at each of the events. Those who participate in all three become a RiseVT Certified Champion, win special RiseVT and Southwestern Vermont Health Care swag, and are entered to win a raffle of fun summer-inspired prizes.
