Put down that remote! This summer, families in Snohomish County can keep track of their running, walking and jumping around and get a nice reward every week they participate. The Get Movin’ program kicks off Saturday, June 7 at the following times and locations: 10 a.m.–1 p.m. at Everett Mall, 10 a.m.–2 p.m. at Alderwood Mall, and 2–4 p.m. at Marysville-Pilchuck High School. Get a registration packet and tracking calendar, T-shirts, giveaways and prizes. And if you drop by Alderwood, stay for the Hi! 5 Fitness Expo. Everything is free — all you do is supply the energy. www.get-moving.org
