Being a healthy city is Worth it.
A community can’t thrive when its members aren’t choosing a healthy way of life. Thirty percent of the Fort Worth population is overweight, a troubling indicator for our children’s future health. Obese children are more likely to become obese adults, putting them at greater risk for developing heart disease and diabetes. Health problems such as these affect a community’s quality of life and productivity — making FitWorth a vital priority for businesses, families, and community leaders.
