Walking and biking are coming back in style as people are prioritizing the health of the environment and ourselves more. And Active Southern West Virginia is here to help.

For four years, Active SWV’s Bike Walk SWV program has steadily spread its influence over our region. Last year boasts several mile markers including the passing of Complete Streets Policy in 3 additional municipalities. Furthermore, the City of Beckley has had an exceptionally great year for bike and walk ability.

While the accomplishments of our Bike Walk communities are remarkable, the most exciting part is that they show no signs of slowing down in 2020. In addition to Beckley, Active SWV also proudly partners with Mount Hope, Oak Hill, Hinton, and Fayetteville. Each passed Complete Streets Policy resolutions as well. Equally important, each are taking steps to uphold that resolution.

Survey data indicates that many kids increased their physical activity levels, decreased their screen time, and felt more confident in their ability to be physically active every day. At the beginning and end of each Kids Run Club season, youth participants fill out a pre and post survey answering questions about their activity levels, daily screen time, and confidence in their ability to be physically active. The collective survey data is analysed at the WVU School of Public Health to determine what changes occurred for each child over the 6-8 weeks of Run Club. We got some great results in 2019! 

Check out some of the cool results from the 2019 spring and fall Kids Run Club seasons at https://activeswv.org/less-screen-time-and-more-physical-activity-how-children-benefit-from-kids-run-clubs/.
