PowerUp for a week of fun!
A week-long celebration of fun and activity is coming. PowerUp Week is May 5-12 and a host of events is planned across the St. Croix Valley and western Wisconsin. It’s a time to have fun, get inspired and take part in activities to help the community eat better and move more.
Highlights of the fourth annual PowerUp Week include 2K and 5K family runs; birthday parties for Chomp – the PowerUp superhero carrot; a kids’ Power Chef cooking class; kids’ animal and glacial pot hole exploration hikes; and geocaching and fat tire biking events.
In Wisconsin, there will be PowerUp events in Amery, Hudson, New Richmond and Somerset; in Minnesota, Afton, Bayport, Lake Elmo, Mahtomedi, Stillwater, Taylors Falls and White Bear Lake will host events.
There’s also a chance for your child to become the next Power Chef Recipe Contest winner. Enter your most delicious, kid-approved fruit- and veggie-inspired recipes to take the 2018 title. Prizes include PowerUp cooking gear. Submit recipes and get full details and rules at healthpartners.com/PowerUpFamily.
