Almost 29 percent of all Alabamians are physically inactive, meaning they don’t do any physical activity or exercise outside their normal jobs, so, it’s time to Move Alabama!

The Pike County Extension Office in Troy is joining the Alabama Cooperative Extension as it launches “Move Alabama,” a collaboration between SNAP-Ed and EFNEP at Auburn University.

Kristen Sanders, Pike County Extension Office, said Move Alabama is a community physical activity challenge that provides the chance for individuals to get up and moving with friends, family and neighbors while exploring the community.
