BECKLEY, WV (WOAY) – Active Southern West Virginia responds to the COVID-19 pandemic by offering virtual free programs aimed at kids.
“Kids’ schedules are completely thrown off right now,” says India Tarleton Krawczyk. “First of all, it’s important to keep kids moving because the CDC recommends kids should be active for 60 minutes a day every day. If we can provide some resources for kids to be active a few days a week, that’s great.
The organization implemented the program to give kids a way to run off some energy without breaking any quarantine or social distancing rules. The group is also hosting a virtual regional fun run 5k that’s open to all ages.
Anyone can register for the program by joining the Virtual Kids Run Club Facebook event.
