In partnership with the Mayor’s Boston Moves for Health Initiative, Boston After School & Beyond is working with summer youth programs to keep track of the physical activities youth are engaging in throughout the city. As we enter the last month of summer, one organization shares their work to keep youth active this summer! Are you moving along with them, Boston?
In April, Mayor Thomas M. Menino announced his Boston Moves for Health Campaign. In the Mayor’s words, this is “an ambitious campaign to improve the health and fitness of our city.” Boston residents can create accounts on the BMHC website, set personal health goals, map walking or running routes, and get nutrition tips. In addition to tracking your own fitness progress on the site, you can coordinate group activities with friends and move toward wellness together.
