PowerUp this week to eat better, move more

A week of fun ways to PowerUp is taking place in the St. Croix Valley

PowerUp Week is taking place May 5-13 in locations from Mahtomedi, Minnesota, to Amery, Wisconsin. This is the third annual PowerUp Week in the St. Croix Valley.

This special week encourages people to have fun, get inspired and PowerUp. There are lots of activities to help everyone move more and eat better.

Events start on Friday, May 5 with the PowerUp Family Cinco de Mayo Triathlon.

The Power Chef Recipe Contest will be held through May 26. The best kid-approved recipe using fruits or veggies will win an Instant Pot gift pack. Find the full details and rules here.

Last year, more than 80 organizations partnered with us to put on PowerUp Week. More than 2,200 children and adults took part in activities. More than 1,800 bags of carrots and veggies were given away. And 260 pounds of food were collected for local food shelves.
