Healthy Green, an 8-Week Health Challenge, Beginning April 3

Green, OH (March 18, 2019) – The City of Green is once again teaming with Cleveland Clinic Akron General to make a healthier community through our Healthy Green initiative by offering another 8-week Healthy Green Challenge to residents beginning April 3.  Last year the FREE program helped more than 150 Green residents lose weight and begin making healthy lifestyle changes.    

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.  The program includes healthy lifestyle classes every Wednesday 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 Sarah Arend at (330)721-5992 or sarend@ccf.org.   The program begins Wednesday, April 3, with the first health screening, and ends May 22 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. 

“Cleveland Clinic Akron General continues to be a great community partner with the City of Green. Last year’s Healthy Green program was a success helping many of our residents begin to make healthy lifestyle changes,” said Gerard Neugebauer, mayor of Green. “This program is just an example of how their leadership in health and wellness is making a positive impact on our community as a whole.”

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 Sydney Vargo at 330.344.6971 or vargos2@ccf.org  for more information.
