We launched the Get Up & Go! Community Recognition Program in October 2013. To qualify for this recognition, towns complete an application that describes plans, policies, and environmental features that promote healthy eating and active living for citizens and their municipal employees. A committee from Get Up & Go reviews and evaluates the applications. View the Flyer

This application can guide communities who might want to take steps to achieve this designation. A review panel of 5 representatives from Get Up & Go will consider this application and provide feedback within 6 weeks.
