ABOUT OUR PROJECTS
The Williamson Farmers' Market brings fresh, local produce to community members, encourages healthy eating habits and provides an outlet for local farmers and gardeners to sell home grown foods and veggies.
By expanding on previously established programs and events within West Virginia, the WVRRN will be able to build and establish strong partnerships to improve overall health and physical activity levels in all regions of West Virginia.
The Challenge of the National Spring Lunch Walk Challenge for 2015 is to increase physical activity throughout the nation. We believe that by increasing physical activity we will be able to help encourage not only healthier lifestyles, but also a more healthy social lifestyle as well.
