While most people don’t think of mud pies during the winter, this Rhinelander M.U.D. P.I.E. is designed to get people up and get them moving.
M.U.D. (Motivation Upside Down) P.I.E. (Partners in Encouragement) is a neighborhood wellness program administered by Becky Barker, a certified physical education, health and adaptive teacher and is sponsored through Calvary Baptist Church in Rhinelander.
The first part of the program, M.U.D. runs from Jan. 13 to Feb. 23. Using a pedometer to register total steps each day, participants will find the encouragement they need to be intentional about getting up and moving around.
Participation in the neighborhood wellness program costs $10–but the money is fully refundable if you complete the program’s requirements. For additional encouragement, those who participate will have a weekly chance to win a gift card.
The second part of the wellness program is P.I.E. This segment will be led by chef Brittany Zimmerman from the Dinky Diner in Rhinelander, who will demonstrate recipes that are delicious and healthy–and there will be a low impact dance class that will feature Becky Barker leading participants in some easy movement to some golden oldies. Program dates are Feb. 13 and 27 and the program costs $10–which is fully refundable if you attend two of the four offerings (each session is divided between the food demonstration and the movement class).
Anyone in the community who would like to register for either M.U.D. or P.I.E. (or both) or would like more information may call Calvary Baptist at 715-362-4792 or stop by the church office at 320 Lincoln Street, Tuesday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
