PowerUp for a week of fun!

Posted on:

A week-long celebration of fun and activity is coming.

The PowerUp team gets ready for a community veggie giveaway in Somerset during PowerUp Week 2017.

PowerUp Week is May 5-12 and a host of events is planned across the St. Croix Valley and western Wisconsin. It’s a time to have fun, get inspired and take part in activities to help the community eat better and move more.

Highlights of the fourth annual PowerUp Week include 2K and 5K family runs; birthday parties for Chomp – the PowerUp superhero carrot; a kids’ Power Chef cooking class; kids’ animal and glacial pot hole exploration hikes; and geocaching and fat tire biking events.

In New Richmond you can meet Chomp, the PowerUp Superhero carrot, at Family Fresh Market on Saturday, May 5 from 12:30 – 1:30 p.m.

There’s also a chance for your child to become the next Power Chef Recipe Contest winner. Enter your most delicious, kid-approved fruit- and veggie-inspired recipes to take the 2018 title. Prizes include PowerUp cooking gear. Submit recipes and get full details and rules at
