Founded in October 2009, Healthy Lombard is a Village-wide Initiative that was formed in order to address the problem of Childhood Obesity with positive, effective solutions as well as promote living a healthy lifestyle.
It sponsors a website that features a daily blog, a calendar of village-wide events, and other “participation” activities such as Apple Crunch Day, Fitness Fairs, Flat Apple Summer activities, G.Y. M. (Get Yourself Moving) Bags, and Health Hero Awards, that often involve both children and adults because, without great adult role models, children’s habits will not change.
Healthy Lombard also produces a monthly cable show called “Health Local. This 1/2 hour, magazine type program, features 6 different health-related elements.
Healthy Lombard is very proud that it has been recognized as a blueprint for other villages and towns to follow in their quest to make a positive difference in the health of future generations.
