Rosslyn, VA – April 6, 2020 – Today, the Rosslyn BID announced new virtual resources for the community to keep their bodies and minds strong during the COVID-19 crisis. A twice-weekly trivia game with prizes and a variety of fitness and wellness programs are now available on the Rosslyn BID’s website for anyone to enjoy, free of charge.
“Community is very important to us in Rosslyn, and while staying at home is the right thing to do right now, we know that people are craving connections to each other,” said Rosslyn BID President Mary-Claire Burick. “Everyone loves pub trivia and a free workout class, so we figured we would bring those amenities into everyone’s homes. We’re looking forward to continuing to build strong ties in Rosslyn, even during these unusual circumstances.”
The Rosslyn BID is offering a free game of trivia twice a week to close out the workday or kick off virtual happy hour. The 20-question trivia game can be accessed via phone or computer on Tuesdays and Thursdays, beginning at 5:00 p.m. The game is an individual player format, and the top three scorers from each match will receive a digital gift card of up to $75 to either Target, Safeway, or CVS. More details and rules can be found here.
Partnering with local fitness studios, gyms and Victor, everyone’s favorite Bootcamp coach, the Rosslyn BID has created a new resource to share wellness videos and free content that are accessible from home. Current participants include Gold’s Gym, The Village Mind, One20, Bash Boxing, Rock Recovery and The Optimal Physical Therapy Network. New content relating to physical therapy and overall mental and physical wellbeing will continue to be added to the page, which can be found here.
The Rosslyn BID is also continuing their #RosslynRewards program and their Rosslyn restaurant directory to support restaurants that are operating during these uncertain times. More details on both initiatives can be found here and here.
