In the summer of 2010, Fit City Tyler began as a shared initiative between various businesses concerned with the nation’s escalating obesity epidemic. The Northeast Texas Public Health District (NETHealth), the Tyler Moring Telegraph, the City of Tyler, Brookshire Grocery Company, and many others joined to focus on the one thing impacting us all – obesity and poor health.
Fit City Tyler has evolved into an organization led by community leaders volunteering their time to create ideas, programs and campaigns to promote health. Events are held year-round to promote fitness, nutrition, workplace wellness, children’s health and disease prevention.
These events and programs are carried out by Fit City Tyler’s planning committee, led by NET Health CEO George Roberts and representatives from local health and wellness organizations.
Our coalition meets once per quarter to carry out the organization’s mission statement:
Making Tyler a healthy community one step, one bite and one health-conscious decision at a time.
A seed was planted in 2010 and it has grown into a strong group of companies, cities, churches, communities and citizens who have joined us in eating healthier, getting more physical activity, drinking more water and making sure that Tyler can remain a Fit City by encouraging everyone to live healthier "one bite, one step and one health-conscious decision at a time.
