Get Movin

There are two sides to ROWAN MOVES.

  • There’s the EXERCISE side: promoting health and wellness through physical activity, challenging our community to reach Two Billion Steps, engaging current non-walkers, providing the support they need to become regular walkers, combating childhood obesity, etc.

  • Then there’s the ROWAN side…. This side of ROWAN MOVES is about discovery. It’s about getting outside of your daily routine and exploring a new part of the community you call home. You may already be using your usual parks and rec centers. You may not. But the one thing you do have is the ability to discover a new part of this great county. In fact, it’s right here on this webpage.

Click on any of Rowan County’s towns below to discover some of the amazing places where you can exercise throughout the campaign.
