Warm weather is here (at least, for the time being,) and Erieites are shedding off their layers, donning sunglasses and heading outside.
I, for one, signed up for Erie Times-News’ team in the Erie Walks competition. Employees around downtown Erie will form teams, exercise (walking, cycling, running, etc.) for 30 minutes a day and tally how many days they reach that goal during the 8-week competition.
Erie Walks encourages team-building, camaradie and hopefully, the loss of some of that winter weight. Because let’s face it, we could all use that.
Another great way to get outside and get involved is to volunteer for the Erie Sports Commission.
Here’s what they are looking for:
Volunteers are being sought to assist in the process of researching available sporting events, providing assistance to analyze and grow local sports events, or to assist in the administration of area sports activities.
To get involved, download the application online at eriesportscommission.com, call 814-454-1000 or stop at the offices of VisitErie, 208 East Bayfront Parkway.
