Our Mission

The mission of the Mayors Wellness Campaign is to equip mayors and other key leaders with the tools to develop and implement active-living initiatives in their communities with the ultimate goal of improving health and reducing the skyrocketing health care costs that come with the obesity problem in New Jersey.

Via this web page we can:

  • Provide links to a wide variety of government-approved health and nutrition information websites.
  • Give evidence-based tips on nutrition, weight management, and physical activity.
  • Encourage community participation in obtaining and maintaining our status as a healthy town.
  • Get residents involved in new initiatives.
  • Share success stories of residents who have improved their health with a healthy lifestyle.
  • Promote wellness events.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer and working with the committee or have any ideas for events please contact us! More hands make less work. We value your time and appreciate your involvement.
