IMG_0167

Let’s hope for a sunny day!

Join Decatur Active Living on Saturday, May 5 from 10am until 1pm for the annual Touch-a-Truck Event. This fun community event gives children of all ages an opportunity to touch, explore and see their favorite trucks or equipment on wheels.  The City of Decatur and DeKalb County dump trucks, fire trucks, tractors, police cars and motorcycles and many other types of vehicles will be on display. This year we will even have a solar panel display truck!

Ride the train! This year’s Touch a Truck event will be held in the East Lake MARTA station NORTH lot. We encourage visitors to ride the train to the event and make this a family field trip!

Register your bike!  We encourage folks to ride their bike to the event to have it registered by the Decatur Police Department. All those who ride their bike to the event will also receive a special bike pin!

Food Drive! March is National Nutrition Month, a campaign that focuses attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. When you come to Touch-A-Truck, join in the effort by bringing any canned or non-perishable food item. All items will be delivered to DEAM, Decatur Emergency Assistance Ministry.

Touch-a-Truck takes place in the East Lake MARTA station NORTH parking lot on DeKalb Avenue. Parking is limited so consider riding the train, walking or biking to the event. For more information, contact Cheryl Burnette 678-553-6541 or cheryl.burnette@decaturga.com. Be sure to visit www.beactivedecatur.com for up-to-date information on all Active Living programs throughout the year.

Celebrate Earth Day at the 11th Annual Beat the Street for Little Feet 5K

OCP posterThe 11th annual Beat the Street for Little Feet 5k, hosted by Oakhurst Cooperative Preschool and proudly presented by Stivers Subaru, will be held on Saturday, April 21st 2018! This year’s race coincides with Earth Day and we’ve got lots of fun activities planned that encourage sustainability and eco-consciousness.

The event includes a 5K, 1-mile, and a 500-yard Tot Trot which all start and end at the preschool which is located in historic downtown Oakhurst. The stroller division attracts a lot of families and the original Pete the Cat artwork by New York Times Bestselling Author James Dean always draws a crowd!

During and after the race, there will be all kinds of family friendly activities, including crafts, games, music, and dancing. You can also enjoy delicious treats from local favorites like Revolution Doughnuts, Steel City Pops, and Banjo Coffee. After the race, runners big and small will be recognized in an awards ceremony, including our popular Pete medals for the kids.

Oakhurst Cooperative Preschool is a nonprofit, parent-teacher cooperative, and this event is a perfect opportunity for the school to share with Decatur our two most important goals – creating community and nurturing respect for the earth.

Race operations are designed to have as little environmental impact as possible, and proceeds will benefit operations and special projects at the school, including our environmental curriculum and our tuition assistance program.

To register for the race, go to www.ocprace.com.
