Move Alabama, a collaboration between SNAP-Ed and EFNEP at Auburn University, encourages everyone to get up and get moving with your family, friends and neighbors. Twenty different challenges are available throughout the community and can be completed on your own time. Anyone interested in participating can come by the Extension Office (located behind the County Courthouse) at 13999 AL Highway 22, Rockford, starting March 1 and pick up a printed log to track their progress. Those who complete and return the log will receive a GO! bag and be entered into a drawing for different prizes. For more information call the Coosa County Extension office at 256-377-4713.
