Pleasant View's June 50th Anniversary Activity 50 Miles for 50 Years


Pleasant View's
June 50th Anniversary Activity
50 Miles for 50 Years

 
Join us in getting out and enjoying accessible parks during the month of June for Pleasant View's 50 Miles for 50 years activities.
 
Pleasant View is celebrating 50 years of providing home and community-based services to individuals who have intellectual and developmental disabilities by holding accessible monthly activities.  The 50th Anniversary Committee invites individuals we support, staff members, friends, family and community members to participate in our June 50th Anniversary Activity: 50 Miles for 50 Years. Help us keep the 50th Anniversary celebration going this month by participating in some of the meet-up opportunities to walk in beautiful, accessible locations or other enjoyable locations you choose on your own.  There is no fee to participate, however donations are always welcome.  You can join as a team of 4 to 6 people.  We ask that at least 4 team members be consistent.  This will allow for 4 individuals we support to be part of a team, but the staff members in the team can change to include whoever is working on the date of the activity.  You can also log your miles as an individual participant.  You can’t count the same miles for individual miles if you have also counted them as part of a team and vice versa.
 
Creativity is encouraged. You can walk, use a wheelchair, bike, kayak, jog, run, or any combination of mobile physical activity for 50 miles (no motorized vehicles other than motorized wheelchair). Please keep track of your miles on the 50 Miles for 50 Years June Activity log and submit it along with photos to be entered into a drawing to win prizes. Text or email pictures with the names of participants, activity, and location to Pam Miller at (540) 560-1134 (pmiller@pleasantviewinc.org) and we will share it on our social media. You can also post it to your social media with #PVI50.  Download http://pleasantviewinc.org/Documents/PVI_50Milesfor50Years_website.pdf for more information.
 
Some examples include:
 
· 4 to 6 friends form a team, come up with an awesome name, make your own tie dye team shirts, and log miles in the month of June. If 6 people are walking a mile together, that is 6 miles for your team.
· Attend one of our meet-up activities (listed below) and log miles with whoever shows up for the meet-up in honor of Pleasant View's 50th Anniversary
· Log miles independently (you can still make a team shirt and send pictures)
