With demands on our time, tempting junk food around every corner, and bodies that protest against the strain of exercise, it’s no wonder that many of us struggle every day to do the right thing for ourselves and our families.
In December 2005, the Rye YMCA launched Activate America, an initiative developed by Y-USA to respond to our country’s growing obesity, declining fitness and chronic disease crises.
The goal of this coalition—now called Healthier Sound Shore– is to create long-term, sustainable improvements in lifestyle and health in the communities we serve.
Over the past eight years, our accomplishments have included:
In mid 2012, the Rye Y expanded our community health efforts by reaching out to local partners in Mamaroneck and Port Chester. Through Healthier Port Chester and Healthier Mamaroneck, we are finding new ways to connect low-income African-American and Hispanic families with opportunities for healthier living.
By mobilizing the energy, talents and expertise of our communities, we can make a real difference in combating obesity and chronic disease.
