ACTIVE Life, an Austin-based healthy living organization, believes the national obesity epidemic is just one aspect of an epidemic of unhealthy living. Active Life’s mission is to “make healthy the norm” by changing a culture and society that too often fosters unhealthy choices in our schools, communities and workplaces.
The national obesity epidemic is just one aspect of an epidemic of unhealthy living.
ACTIVE Life has partnered with several corporate and nonprofit organizations to expand its mission of fostering a more active American culture. In May 2010, ACTIVE Life teamed up with Austin Independent School District, H-E-B and Blue Cross Blue Shield for its first annual Make the Movement Day, producing nearly 90,000 “Moments” of healthy activity across the U.S. Team ACTIVE Life, a free Web-based platform for people and places to share and promote healthy habits, has reached more than 900,000 people in 744 schools, 135 community organizations and 15 child care centers across 44 states.
