BENEFITS OF A HEALTHY COMMUNITY

Group-based physical activities, such as team sports or community fitness classes, foster social connections and a sense of belonging. This social fellowship contributes to a healthier community by reducing feelings of isolation and promoting a supportive environment. Teamwork makes the community dream work!
Communities with active populations often experience lower healthcare costs. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that physical inactivity contributes significantly to healthcare expenditures, and promoting physical activity can help alleviate these costs by preventing chronic diseases. The National Institutes of Health estimates the average cost to a person with diabetes is $19,736.
A physically active population tends to be more productive. Regular exercise is associated with increased energy levels, enhanced cognitive function, and better concentration. This, in turn, can positively impact workplace productivity and overall community well-being. The Harvard Business Review reports that exercise improves productivity at work and home!
Active transportation modes such as walking or cycling contribute to reduced air pollution and traffic congestion, promoting environmental sustainability. Creating walkable and bike-friendly communities encourages physical activity while also benefiting the planet.
