1. Take a walk through your local park
2. Canoe or kayak along the river – some parks have an area for you launch your canoe or kayak.
3. Swing on a swing set - bring out the kid in you.
4. Go on a bike ride
5. Participate in a virtual 5k – for those who want to kick their fitness routine up a notch there are many 5k races offered virtually. You can select one that has a charitable cause you would like to support.
