Love these opportunities to walk, be outside, and read a book! Way to go, Loudoun Pediatric Obesity Coalition!

Over the weekend, LPOC set up its first two StoryWalks! Sugarland Run Homeowners Association hosted a StoryWalk during their neighborhood egg hunt, and Morven Park is currently hosting a StoryWalk for the next few weeks during Loudoun Environmental Stewardship Alliance’s Loudoun Nature Days!

We are so excited for this initiative which promotes physical activity, being outdoors, and early literacy!

We are thankful to our member organizations Loudoun County Health Department, The Official Loudoun County Public Schools Safe Routes to School, Loudoun Literacy Council, and Girls on the Run of Northern Virginia for getting this project off and running! And thank you to our funder, Virginia Foundation for Healthy Youth, for their support of healthy communities across Virginia!

Be on the lookout for more pop up and permanent StoryWalks coming soon! #StoryWalkLoudoun

Last flu season, 80,000 people died from the flu and even more got sick. Flu vaccination can prevent you from getting the flu and can lessen the symptoms and severity of the illness if you do get sick.
