CLEARWATER – According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 36 percent of U.S. adults are obese. In Florida, 64 percent of adults are at an unhealthy weight according to the Florida Department of Health.

Clearwater is on a mission to change that by enacting policies shown to increase physical activity and improve nutrition.

The city’s work to get people healthy is being highlighted by the Florida Department of Health awarding Clearwater with the Healthy Weight Community Champion Award for the fourth straight year in a row.

At the April 20 City Council meeting, the city was presented with the 2017 Florida Department of Health Healthy Weight Community Champion Award. This award showcases municipalities for their efforts in reducing obesity in their community.

Some things Clearwater has done recently include installation of a free outdoor fitness zone at Ed Wright Park near Ross Norton, new bike racks and bike fix-it stations along trails to encourage bike riding, and installing water fountains with bottle fillers to encourage hydration.
