North Ridgeville Heart and Sole Challenge

Heart  Sole Logo 2North Ridgeville Heart and Sole Challenge is a community collaborative made up of 14 partners that are working to increase access to physical activity and healthy food options in North Ridgeville. The new collaborative aspires to have a community where more adults have access to exercise programs – both formal and informal – and are exercising regularly, an increased availability of fresh fruits and vegetables in schools, neighborhoods and workplaces resulting in more consumption of these foods from people of all ages, youth spend less time playing video games or watching television and more time engaging in the recommended amount of daily exercise.

Projects being planned in North Ridgeville include healthy cooking classes hosted by Parks and Recreation Department on school grounds and working with the Metro Parks to map and promote walkable and bikeable areas of the community.
