Safety Harbor named a Runner Friendly Community
Running is one of the most popular and affordable forms of exercise to get and keep people fit and healthy. Running with a group can also be a positive social experience. Running can generate significant economic impact dollars for communities that host events and support the running community. Pedestrian networks that include sidewalks, trails, paths, and share lanes often increase property values and overall quality of living in a community. While runners do not require a lot of expensive equipment, there are several ways that local communities can invest to ensure that running is safe, affordable, accessible, and enjoyable for anyone that wants to run. Many communities support a variety of sports and sporting facilities and at the heart of almost every sport is running. Being a Runner Friendly Community not only supports the running community, but running as the foundation for many other community-based sports (soccer, football, tennis, basketball, etc.). The goal of this program is to shine a national spotlight on communities that standout as runner friendly and to provide incentive and ideas for communities to work towards becoming runner friendly communities. Runner friendly communities can increase the quality of life, can improve physical activity for residents as outlined in the
National Physical Activity Plan
, and can provide for increased economic impact for the community.
Safety Harbor Becomes a Let's Move City!
Let's Move! is a comprehensive initiative that was launched by the First Lady in 2010 and is dedicated to solving the problem of childhood obesity within a generation, so that children born today will grow up healthier and able to pursue their dreams. As part of this initiative, Let's Move! Cities, Towns, and Counties calls upon local elected officials to adopt long-term, sustainable, and holistic approaches to addressing childhood obesity. Consistent with Let's Move!, local elected officials who sign up as a Let's Move! Cities, Towns, and Counties site are willing to commit to five goals. Developed with the role of local elected officials in mind, the five goals are designed to promote sustainable strategies that will improve the health of local constituents.
LMCTC goals were identified because they are achievable and measurable and because they leverage existing federal initiatives. In addition, widespread adoption of these goals will highlight local action, enable city, town, and county leaders to track their progress and that their peers in communities across the nation, and accelerate momentum around the development of concrete, sustainable strategies to promote healthy eating and active living. Local elected officials have the opportunity to earn gold, silver, and bronze medals as they proceed in accomplishing the five goals.
