City of Green and the Cleveland Clinic Akron General Partner for the Next Healthy Green 8-Week Health Challenge Beginning September 8

Green, OH – The City of Green is once again teaming with the Cleveland Clinic Akron Healthy GreenGeneral to make a healthier community through our Healthy Green initiative by offering another 8-week Healthy Green Challenge to residents.  First offered in May for a group of up to 50 residents, this FREE 8-week program, which begins September 8, will include up to 75 residents.  See flyer.

The Healthy Green 8-Week Health Challenge begins and ends with health screenings and, for first-time participants, includes free admission to Cleveland Clinic Akron General Lifestyles in Green three days a week.  The program includes healthy lifestyle classes every Tuesday addressing diet, nutrition, heart health and more during the 8-week program.  

Space is limited, and registration is required for the program.  To register, contact Sara Arend at (330) 721-5992 or sarend@ccf.org.   The program begins Saturday, September 8 with the first health screening and ends October 27 with post-program screenings. 

In addition to the Health Challenge, the City and community partners offer free or low-cost programs to promote overall fitness and well-being. 

“It is inspiring to hear about some of the individual successes from the first healthy challenge completed in June,” said Gerard Neugebauer, mayor of Green. “Special thanks to the Cleveland Clinic Akron General for offering this kick-start free to residents who are ready to step up their fitness and improve their health.”

As part of the Healthy Green Initiative, the City is always looking for additional health partners who offer free or discounted fitness or healthy living and lifestyle programs.  As partners, the City and Cleveland Clinic Akron General will share events and opportunities with the community.   Contact Troy Clevenger at 330-896-5015 or clevenT@ccf.org for more information.
