Missouri 4-H'ers get out and move
- Published: Monday, May 24, 2021
COLUMBIA, Mo. – Every year, hundreds of Missouri 4-H’ers, parents and volunteers commit to the pursuit of a healthy lifestyle through Missouri 4-H’s Move Across Missouri challenge.
Between Feb. 1 and April 30 of this year, 312 participants logged 2,470,093 total active minutes. “It is very encouraging to see 4-H’ers incorporating physical activity as part of their overall wellness,” said Samantha Brandeberry, state 4-H educator for civic engagement and healthy living.
Participants can register as individuals, in teams or both. This year, 31 teams participated; 27 Missouri counties were also represented in this year’s competition.
Participants chose a wide variety of activities, Brandeberry said, but the most popular activities this year were walking outside, playing outside, cleaning, running, recess and physical exercises like jumping jacks, pullups and pushups.
