Richmond - Fit for Life!

Volunteer 52% or our Richmond children are currently obese or overweight. This puts them at higher risk for diabetes, high blood pressure and other illnesses.

Their futures are at risk. Each of us in Richmond - individuals, organizations, faith-based communities, neighborhood councils, and groups of friends - can join this campaign simply by deciding to do something to respond to the epidemic of childhood obesity. There are many strategies and actions that can be implemented -- from our homes, from our neighborhoods, and from the entire city.

You can help:

  • Invite Dr. Ritterman and FIT for LIFE to speak at your church or community group

  • Distribute "YES on N" campaign cards to family, friends and neighbors. Bring cards to PTA meetings, ‘Back to School Nights', sports practice and games, and other venues

  • DISPLAY a “YES on N” yard or window sign. Call in and ask for one: 510-595-4661 or 510-412-2260: We’ll deliver it to you or come to pick-up a sign at the Progressive Office:
