EXERCISE CHALLENGE

The Blue Zones Way

SVMHS encourages you to move naturally, the Blue Zones way, during the month of February. Walk 29 miles in 29 days and enjoy the benefits of daily exercise.

The term Moai, pronounced “mo-eye,” is a group of people who come together once a week for a common purpose, encouraging connection with friends, coworkers and your community. It’s about moving naturally where you live, learn, work and play. To learn about walking moai opportunities near you, visit facebook.com/bzpmontereyco.
