wegmans_food_marketsThe Department of Recreation and Parks and The Friends of Anne Arundel County Trails will launch the Wegmans Eat Well, Live Well Passport to Family Wellness Program at an outdoor reception on Saturday, May 18 at 10:00 a.m. at Jonas Green Park in Annapolis, Maryland.

The Anne Arundel County Department of Recreation and Parks Trails, Regional Parks and Friends groups have partnered with Wegmans Food Markets to participate in this unique program.  Recreation and Parks staff and representatives of the Friends groups have worked together to select 25 historic locations and areas of interest along County running and biking trails.  These locations will be indicated with numbered trail markers.  Wegmans has generously funded the cost of passport printing, trail markers and incentive prizes.

Wegmans Eat Well Live Well Passport to Family Wellness Program consists of a pocket-sized trail “passport” with easy-to-read maps, fitness tips, and motivation in the form of prizes for trails hiked and recorded in booklets.  Participants are encouraged to visit 12 markers and document visits by rubbing a raised trail marker in their passport.  Upon completion they are eligible to receive a discount coupon provided by Wegmans. After visiting and documenting 25 trail markers, participants are entered to win a picnic pack from Wegmans (valued at $100) and a free pavilion rental in one of Anne Arundel County’s regional parks.  Winners will be chosen annually.  Prize redemptions take place ONLY at the Department of Recreation and Parks.

The “passports” can be picked up at Wegmans Customer Service Desk in the Waugh Chapel Towne Center store (1413 South Main Chapel Way, Gambrills, MD 21054) or at one of Anne Arundel County Department of Recreation and Parks regional parks and trails visitor centers.  Please visit http://www.aacounty.org/RecParks/ for locations and hours.
