Polk County Public Health, the Polk County Wellness Coalition, community partners, and volunteers are finishing its February Fitness Fever this Sunday, February 26.

To close out this years event, Public Health is partnering with the Crookston Pickleball Club to offer a day of pickleball at the University of Minnesota Crookston Wellness Center. This will be the first year weve done this. We do try to feature new activities and events. This will be our indoor day, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the University of Minnesota Crookston Wellness Center, Wellness Coordinator Amanda Lien explained. Members of the Crookston Pickleball Club will be there to provide equipment and all the instruction needed to learn how to play pickleball. The Club and Public Health encourage all skill levels and those who have never played to come learn how to play and have fun. They are all about sharing their love for this very fun sport if youve never tried it, said Lien. They are also encouraging those who have never played pickleball before to come on out and give it a try. Its great for all ages, and you do not have to have learned to play before to join on that Sunday.

The Wellness Coalition encourages physical activity, especially in the winter. Were really about promoting that physical activity, that daily movement, even if its just for 15-20 minutes a day of getting connected to the outdoors or being active. Its very important for our physical and mental health, and thats why we tried to do a range of activities this year, Lien explained. Weve had some extremely cold weather, so you must be more dressed for that. Understandable that sometimes being inside is a good place to be, and there are places you can do that and still remain active, like the walking track at the Sports Center and Civic Center. Were so grateful to be able to use Wellness Center out at UMC, but theres a number of places that we can be active in indoors.

The Polk County Wellness Coalition wants to thank its many volunteers and partners who collaborate with them to put healthy choices within reach. Tri-Valley Transportation is also available to transport anyone to the event on Sunday.For more information and resources on where and how to stay active in your community, contact Amanda Lien at 218-281-3385.
