Boys-Girls Ranch Receives Award

Posted: Updated:

One organization is hoping to make Minot a healthier place to live and wants to reward those who are attempting to do the same.

Minot Area Team Wellness presented its "Moving More, Eating Smarter" Award to the Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch.

The award is given to business and organizations that inform, educate and promote people to live a healthier lifestyle.

This is the first time the award has been given.

Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch demonstrated health and fitness with not only employees but students as well.

A cafeteria filled with fruits and vegetables, a gymnasium for physical fitness and some cottages even have treadmills in them.

With the weather becoming nicer, one member of the First District Health Unit suggests taking advantage of it.

(Diane Thorne, Public Health Nutritionist, First District Health Unit) "You can get out, you can garden, you can take bike rides, you play soccer with your kids or the neighborhood kids. Go on a scavenger hunt looking for things in nature. Just get out and move."

Thorne also says walking is a great exercise and welcomes anyone to get involved in Walk Minot.

One will be held tonight through the Scandinavian Heritage Park at 6:30.
