Active Living Support Infographic

This infographic was created with our local three county survey data.  Increasing physical activity is a powerful way to prevent obesity and promote health among children and adults. Across our counties, HCC is coming together with local partners to create healthier communities that support active lifestyles.

Children and families are more active when they live in neighborhoods that have sidewalks, parks, bicycle lanes and safe streets. Schools also can help residents of all ages be more active by providing students with quality recess, physical education and after-school programs, and by sharing their facilities with the community outside of school hours.
