For Immediate Release:
KIRKSVILLE ACTIVE PASSPORT PROGRAM AWARDS PRIZES
FOR COMPLETING OUTDOOR CHALLENGES
The Kirksville Parks and Recreation Department is launching its Active Passport program, which will run through October 1. All residents of Kirksville, including families and students, can complete active, outdoor challenges to qualify for a prize.
The outdoor passport program is free, and it includes challenges all around Kirksville’s parks including biking, hiking, swimming and sports. Residents can find further information and download the passport at getactive.kirksvillecity.com.
“The active passport program is a great way for all residents, including families, students, and seniors, to get outside and have fun,” said Melanie Smith, assistant city manager. “It’s absolutely free, so it can save you the expenses of paying for entertainment. Plus, families can encourage healthy habits in their children.”
The program is part of Kirksville’s Get Active Kirksville initiative to show people what activities exist in Kirksville and to encourage healthy lifestyles among the community.
Funding for this project was provided in part by the Missouri Foundation for Health, a philanthropic organization whose vision is to improve the health of the people in the communities it serves.
