Get Fit Dan River Region:
Our goal is to help transform the Dan River region into a more vibrant, livable community whose citizens value health and wellness.
Obesity is one of the leading health challenges in our nation today. Virginia Department of Health data indicates that two thirds of the citizens of Danville/Pittsylvania County are overweight or obese, putting them at significant risk for chronic conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes and some forms of cancer.
Funded by the Danville Regional Foundation in early 2010 to promote “healthy people in healthy communities,” Get Fit focuses on offering community programs that encourage and enable consistent physical activity and assist citizens in making healthier nutrition choices. Get ready, get set, Get Fit in the Dan River region!
