National Childhood Obesity Month

LiveWell is wrapping up our PICH Grant with perfect timing:during National Childhood Obesity Month.

With over 40% of our youth either obese or overweight, our work focuses on making Greenville County the healthiest county in the U.S, and the Partnerships to Improve Community Health (PICH) Grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has provided us with the opportunity to pursue that goal over the past three years. With the wrap of  the PICH Grant, LiveWell Greenville’s partners look to sustaining successful initiatives like Mobi-Rec, Play Streets (City of Greenville Parks and Recreation), Mill Village Farm’s Mobile Market, Park Heroes (Greenville County) and Park Hop.
