Visit the DYB page for more details about how easy it is to get up and ride. Register for our kickoff rides on April 26 at the 20th Ave YMCA, part of Healthy Kids Day!

Help make the Healthy Choice the Easy Choice! 

Sometimes you just need a quick reminder to take the stairs or to choose a healthier snack. re:TH!NK can help with Point of Decision Prompts (PODP). Making a better choice is as easy as reading a reminder prompt right where a choice is made. re:TH!NK's PODP Toolkit has several easy-to-post options to remind people to take the stairs, park further from the door and pick healthy fruits and veggies. There are kid-friendly prompts too suitable for a school, daycare, or the home (right next to the snack drawer).
