Governor Rick Snyder recently addressed the legislature, outlining his plans to drastically reduce obesity across the state. In his address, Snyder cited the Chelsea-Area Wellness Foundation’s efforts to promote wellness through the work of the Five Healthy Towns Project.
The Five Healthy Towns Project (5H) is a groundbreaking project that involves planning and funding of community wide wellness. By creating a culture of wellness in these communities, in addition to the support of Chelsea Community Hospital, the goal of 5H is to make Chelsea, Dexter, Manchester, Grass Lake and Stockbridge the 5 healthiest communities in the Midwest.
To celebrate their efforts, 5H is hosting a 5 Healthy Towns Party on Sunday, September 25th at Chelsea High School from noon – 4pm. NBC’s The Today Show Nutritionist and author, Joy Bauer and award winning fitness coach and author John Calve will be in attendance. This free event will also include games and events centered around healthy eating and exercise.
