YMCA’s Activate America (#311)
The Activate America program is designed to improve the nation’s health by supporting kids, adults, families and communities in their pursuit of well-being in spirit, mind and body. Some of the projects included in the program are America on the Move Week, which is designed to increase the number of daily steps people take, and annual YMCA Healthy Kids Days, which encourage children and families to adopt behaviors that support a healthy lifestyle.
The Pioneering Healthier Communities project, a key component of the Activate America program, promotes healthy snacks and physical activity in after-school programs, improved walking and biking trails, and community gardens and farmers markets.
