Why LiveWell Greenville

Greenville County has one of the highest obesity rates in the nation with 66% of adults and 41% of youth being overweight or obese.  It is difficult to maintain a healthy lifestyle when the surrounding environment does not promote healthy habits.  Without providing adequate access to healthy eating and active living, the overall health of our community will continue to decline.

Hosted by the YMCA of Greenville as our legal and fiscal agent, LiveWell Greenville has become the primary vehicle through which partner organizations can successfully promote positive change.  Our coalition supports schools, neighborhoods, businesses and other areas of our community through resources, collaboration and evaluation to promote healthy eating and active living.

    A Day of Play at Fluor Field

    Park Hop 2016 has come to a close! Yesterday, we celebrated Park Hop at Fluor Field with the Greenville Drive and the US Play Coalition. Before the game, students with Clemson University’s Department of Parks, Recreation, and Tourism worked with the City of Greenville’s Mobi-Rec truck to set up all types of games on the baseball field.
