Community Focus

The Made to Move Challenge is a great way to engage your community and minister to their needs, even in the face of unprecedented situations like the COVID-19 pandemic.

Consider these ideas:

  • Virtual 5K walk/run – see the Columbia Union’s Virtual Visitor 5K/1 Mile run/walk
  • Family fun activities – provide kits to be used at home or find online activities to share
  • Free health screening – work with a local hospital, clinic, or non-profit to make it safe
  • Healthy lifestyle education through online webinars
  • Health book/literature distribution
  • Volunteer as a group at a local non-profit to help the needy in the community
  • Get the Made to Move Challenge shirts to show togetherness (coming soon)

Don’t forget to invite community partners, such as:

  • Nearby churches
  • Hospitals and clinics
  • Schools and universities
  • Fire and police departments
  • Public health department
  • Non-profit organizations
  • Athletic groups (runners, bikers, etc)
