Get Active

Get Active

Did you get a chance to enjoy Spring Break and get outside? We're so happy about Spring being here and the warmer temperatures that we decided to make "Get Active" our theme for April. It's not only about the physical benefits - getting outside and moving your body also has mental benefits. We are excited to share great resources with you, and would love to hear what you're doing to get active; connect with us on Facebook to share.
