Default Want to find a great community program...

and hoped that y'all would be able to let me know about some.

I know that there are some "Biggest Loser" type challenges in workplaces and on this forum. I've heard of 10,000 Steps community iniatives. Anyone else now or formerly a part of a community-wide initiative, especially in a smaller community (about 13,500)?

I went to a community retreat this weekend, and volunteered for the community wellness committee. I am so into this idea, and really want to know what has worked elsewhere in order to help put together a program that will fix our community's obesity problem. I said fix. It's the early stages, and I am in the way optimistic mindset!

Thanks for any input!

Laurie

Our community has participated in "Let's Get Moving" the last few years. We had teams from most businesses in town and other groups as well. I really liked the ability to log everything online

We are an even smaller community than you are.

Thanks for the response, CountingDown, and the additional details on the PM. I am bumping this thread because postings over the weekend sometime get missed, and I would really love to get a variety of community programs to investigate.
