Welcome to the Mayor’s Fitness Council website!

The Mayor’s Fitness Council(MFC) mission is to collaborate with community leaders in all sectors to develop and implement policy and environmental improvement strategies that will help the healthy choice be the easy and natural choice for residents.

Living healthy means integrating physical activity, good nutrition and a regular health care regiment into our lives.  We encourage you to explore our website to learn about the MFC’s projects and initiatives, see what activities and programs are available to help you along your path to wellness or discover ways you can help our community become as healthy as it possibly can be today.   Join us as we push towards creating a community where the healthy choice is the easy choice.

Featured Partner of the Month – Alliance for a Healthier Generation and Windsor Park Elementary School

In response to the rapid increase in childhood obesity rates over the last three decades, the Alliance for a Healthier Generation was founded to serve as a catalyst for improving children’s health. The Alliance works with schools, companies, community organizations, healthcare professionals and families to build healthier environments where children thrive. The Alliance’s current work directly impacts more than 20 million children, with a focus on low-income and minority populations who are at increased risk for obesity and other diseases. Millions more young people benefit from system changes initiated through partnerships between the Alliance and the corporate sector.

The Alliance, founded by the American Heart Association and the Clinton Foundation, recognized Windsor Park Elementary with a 2014 National Healthy Schools Award for transforming its environment into a healthier place. Windsor Park Elementary received this award at the Alliance’s 2014 Leaders Summit in Washington, DC on September 13.

To earn the National Healthy Schools Award Windsor Park Elementary improved its nutrition and wellness services and physical activity programs to meet or exceed stringent standards set by the Alliance’s Healthy Schools Program.

Join us at City Council on Tuesday, October 28th as Mayor Martinez and City Council recognize Windsor Park Elementary School for their hard work and dedication to the health and well being of their student body, parents and teachers!
