Pick Your Park in the Lowcountry

Pick Your Park in the LowcountryTo celebrate National Walking Day, Charleston launched a “Pick Your Park” social media campaign. The campaign featured four local parks which were designed by local sponsor, Seamon Whiteside.  Community members were encouraged to post a picture by tagging the Lowcountry facebook page and using the hashtag #pickyourpark. It was a great way to engage the lowcountry and encourage everyone to get moving!

Also in Charleston, Dr. Jean Ruddy of MUSC talked about the benefits of walking on the WCIV morning show. She encouraged viewers to lace up their sneakers and walk at least thirty minutes a day. The WCIV crew even sported their tennis shoes and encouraged viewers to get out and get fit. Check out the segment here.
