A family walk is a great way to connect while being physically active. Like any routine, though, you may feel the need to spice it up. If your family is in a walking rut, try the four tips in this month's Family Fun on the Run Newsletter to boost the fun for everyone. 

Outdoor activities are a great way to fit physical activity into your day. When physical activity is fun for the whole family, everyone benefits. Don't forget to include children in the planning process to increase their engagement. Adults are encouraged to walk, run, and play with the children during the activity instead of just sitting on the sidelines. We have some of these outdoor activities to get active as a family in the latest edition of Family Fun on the Run newsletter including a FREE printable Sidewalk Chalk Obstacle Course and an Outdoor Scavenger Hunt!
