County Scavenger Hunt Begins
This spring’s Hardeman Healthy Outreach BE MORE spring activities were delayed due to stay-at-home orders. One of those activities was a scavenger hunt organized by task force member, Brittney Willis (see photo). The scavenger hunt started this week and runs through Wednesday, July 1.
“Even though we all need to be persistent with social distancing and other COVID-19 prevention measures, folks can get out and take advantage of being outdoors for physical activity. People can walk to some of these locations by parking in one spot and walking,” said Amy Elizer, UT Extension specialist.
All eight posters and banners are located in Bolivar at a place somehow connected with improving or protecting good health. Most of the items are outside or can be seen from the outside. Participants should not go inside facilities. The hints are available on the @BeMoreHardeman Facebook page or by emailing email@example.com. Once participants collect all eight selfies, they should take their phone to the UT-TSU Extension office, 210 Vildo Road, during normal business hours for verification of the locations. BE MORE t-shirts sponsored by the organizations hosting an item are available one per winning family while supplies last.
This project is funded by the CDC’s High Obesity Program (HOP) and is working with The University of Tennessee Extension to improve access to food and physical activity opportunities throughout Hardeman County, as well as local sponsors.
