Keep On Moving book

The Keep On Moving book showcases various kid-friendly activities and lists the number of calories burned during 15 minutes of each activity. During each week there will be pictures of kid-friendly activities placed as puzzle pieces throughout the Center. When a walker spots an activity, they will confirm it with Customer Service and receive a stamp for their book. Once a walker fills up their book, they will receive a special prize.
