In an effort to get people out and active, the Evansville Parks and Recreation Department has teamed with the Welborn Baptist Foundation's Upgrade Campaign for a summer contest centered around our city's parks.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to visit our city parks and have fun! Oh, and take a few selfies while you're at it and upload them to the Upgrade Facebook page for the chance to win prizes such as an iPod Nano, a FitBit One, or a family membership to either Wesselman Woods Nature Preserve or Mesker Park Zoo.

So get out there! Run, jump, play! You may just find yourself having a better time than the kids.
