Image We were so happy to see 600 families enjoying themselves this past Sunday at the Splash Dash family fun run. Playing together is great bonding time, and families at the Splash Dash created memories to last a life time. Almost 1500 people participated in the Let’s Get Midwest City Moving Free, Family Fun Runs over the three runs.We can’t wait to see you all again, and are already thinking about the next free, family event, scheduled for October 19, 2014. In the meantime, ONIE has a few tips to stay active with your family. You and your family will reap the benefit of any physical activity that you enjoy and that fits into your life.
  • Keep walking with your family- Walking finish mother daughter

You have a great park, Midwest City Joe B. Barnes Regional Park. We hope you keep enjoying it. In fact, most of our cities and towns in Oklahoma have wonderful parks. Jumprope
  • Jumping rope is a family favorite-

It is easy and can be done anywhere. Jumping rope will really get your heart rate up and build muscle tone.
  • My pet is my walking buddy-

He is learning how to catch a Frisbee now. These games get us both moving. [caption id="attachment_2060" align="alignright" width="150"]Hula hoop The kids can give us plenty of tips on hooping![/caption]
  • Hula hooping is way cool right now-

It strengthens core muscle and tone your body. It works as many as 30 different muscles. Some people say it even helps with lower-back pain
  • Some of the benefits of regular physical activity-

Well of course it will reduce your risks of chronic disease like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and some cancers. But did you know it can improve your mental health and mood. Mood Children benefit as well. Regular physical activity helps build healthy bones and muscles but it also improves school performance.
  • A little bit goes a long way-

For us adults (18 to 64 years of age) 30 minutes of moderate physical activity is recommended five days a week. Even ten minutes at a time is fine.  Children and adolescents (6 to 17 years of age) need more; 60 minutes of moderate physical activity is recommended every day. Plan and schedule a time to be active together and keep moving Midwest City! Be well from the ONIE Project Team! ONIE_logo_tagline small
