Virtual Events 

Youth Walk/Jog -a Thon March 26th 11-11:30am

Join the BCRPD on Thursday from 11am-11:30am from your own home for our jog-a-thon!
We all know kids need to stay active, so why not do it with a little competitive edge to it?
Find an area on your property or on your street where kids can safely run “laps.”
Record their number of laps during the duration of the event and post a fun video or picture for proof!
HINT: we would love to see fun “time lapse” videos of your kids run!

Indoor Activities

Here are a few ideas for staying active indoors.

Outdoor Activities

Did you know that the current Shelter in Place order allows for individuals to "engage in outdoor activity, provided the individuals comply with the Social Distancing Requirements...such as, by way of example and without limitation, walking, hiking and running." Here’s a few ideas (don’t forget your Social Distance rules!).

  • Visit a nearby County or State Park - These are all still open 

  • Head to the beach.  is just a short drive away, with miles of beach to walk. 

  • Walk/run around your neighborhood and say hi (from a distance) to all of your neighbors who are getting outside too.

  • Go for a drive.

Stay Connected

Although we’re all social distancing physically, as humans we need to stay connected emotionally. Try one or two of these out every day.

  • Call a friend or relative you haven’t spoken to in a while to check in.

  • Write a letter.

  • Facetime.

  • Support a local restaurant - Many restaurants are still open for take out or delivery orders. Support your favorite joints and order food for pick up or try out Doordash or Ubereats and have it brought to you.  

  • Volunteer -  There are many opportunities to volunteer to help those in our community.  The Second Harvest Food Bank is in need of extra help during this period of high demand. Sign-up for a shift on the food bank’s website.

  • Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories, including social media. Hearing about the pandemic repeatedly can be upsetting.

  • Take care of your body. Take deep breaths, stretch, or meditate. Try to eat healthy, well-balanced meals, exercise regularly, get plenty of sleepMake time to unwind. 

  • Connect with others. Talk with people you trust about your concerns and how you are feeling.

  • Work on Mindfulness - Mindfulness is a type of meditation in which you focus on being intensely aware of what you’re sensing and feeling in the moment, without interpretation or judgment. Practicing mindfulness involves breathing methods, guided imagery, and other practices to relax the body and mind and help reduce stress.

For the Kids (or kids at heart)

  • Hold a virtual play date through Facetime.

  • Teach a young person how to write and send a letter.

  • Take a Virtual Vacation - Explore the work using Google Earth! Use Street View to see places like you’re actually there.

  • Head to the Monterey Bay Aquarium through their live stream.

  • Educational Resources
