Get Up and Go encourages children in the Chippewa Valley to stay active

Eau Claire (WQOW)- Get Up and Go is the message the Wisconsin Public Television has for children in the Chippewa Valley. 

Alisha Green, Youth Services Coordinator for the L.E Phillips Memorial Library, said every year they have around four to five hundred people come out to the annual event at the library to play games and encourage kids to be healthy and active.

Green said they have lots of activities including yoyo’s, crafts and dancing. 

"We would encourage people to come out today to see what our community offers for activities for families and to try new activities that they maybe haven’t tried before, learn a new hobby or an outdoor activity," Green said.

Green said they also have favorite PBS kids characters walking around like Peg and Cat.
