North Ridgeville Heart and Sole

North Ridgeville Heart and Sole is a Community Collaborative focused on increasing access to physical activity and healthy food options in North Ridgeville.

Goal: 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.

Initiatives: Healthy cooking classes hosted by Parks and Recreation Department on school grounds, farm markets, healthy concession stand offerings, and working with the Metro Parks to map and promote walkable and bikeable areas of the community.

Partners: Beckett Corp | Cleveland Clinic | French Creek Family YMCA | Lorain County Metro Parks | Lorain County Public Health | Lorain County Volunteer Connection | Maximize Fitness | North Ridgeville City Schools | North Ridgeville Community Care | North Ridgeville Parks and Recreation | North Ridgeville Senior Center | North Ridgeville Seniors Inc. | United Way of Greater Lorain County
