A representative from Columbia County will be on-site for each of the Move it Monday sessions. This person will be identifiable by a MOVE flag/banner, typically near restroom facilities.
To begin, a Columbia County representative will be on hand at each planned event (look for the flag/banner) to assist with sign-in. In time, RFID scanners will be installed near restroom structures, allowing you to swipe your card for check-in 24/7.
Move it Monday walking groups will be led by county personnel. Weekend Workouts will be led by trained instructors.
Weather-appropriate, loose, comfortable clothing and good walking shoes.
Bring a bottle of water and a towel, if necessary.
If attending one of our yoga workouts, bring your own mat.
In the event of rainy or threatening weather, our planned outdoor activities will be cancelled. We'll email all registered members and post to our Facebook page (ColumbiaCountyEvents) any time this situation occurs.
