Why we are doing this:

  • ›  In 2010, only 16.4% of women age 18 and older met the 2008 Federal Physical Activity Guidelines (US Center for Disease Control (CDC) 2012).
  • ›  Among women age 20 and older, the following are overweight or obese: 59.3% of non-Hispanic whites; 70.8% of non-Hispanic blacks and 75.1% of Mexican Americans (CDC, 2012)
  • ›  A 2008 Center for Disease Control study found a majority of American women overextended, depressed, anxious and isolated. (CDC 2008)
  • ›  One in three female adults has some kind of cardiovascular disease (CDC, 2012)
  • ›  Personal health and environmental health are intertwined and equally important, yet women often allow their personal health to take a back seat to other demands in their lives

Program Goals:

  • ›To Nurture the Women Who Nurture their Families and our World.
  • ›To support women in taking Better Care of Them Selves and give them the tools to make health and wellness a permanent and sustainable priority in their lives
  • ›To Play More, Spend More Time In Nature, Connect More with Friends and Family: Hiking, Exercising, Exploring…and much more!
