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.
