Welcome to Healthy Lee

Join the initiative for a Healthier Lee County!

The Healthy Lee movement was created to empower and inspire the people of Lee County regarding healthy lifestyle choices through education and action. The initiative reflects Lee County’s comprehensive sustainability strategy, promoting the integration of healthy lifestyle choices into the daily routines and the built environment, and supports the message of transformation based on free choice.

“A journey of a thousand miles starts with the first step” and certainly a wellness journey starts with the first step toward being more active and the first step toward eating more healthy food. We all know what we need to do to stay healthy but it is not until we commit ourselves to becoming and staying healthy that we are able to take the first steps.


Join the Million Mile Movement!

The journey of a million miles begins with a single step…


Take a step toward healthier living by joining Healthy Lee’s Million Mile Movement and register for this community-wide challenge for FREE!

Whether you’re walking, running, biking or swimming, help Lee County to get more active by moving 1,000,000 miles in 90 days.

Beginning Oct. 1, 2015, participants will be able to log their daily exercise here on the Healthy Lee Website where every “step” counts. Our easy-to-use website will allow you to track your healthy activities like walking, running, swimming and bicycling to show you’re “going the distance” towards a healthier lifestyle. So take a walk, climb the stairs or exercise any way you want and log your progress with us. By the end of the year, we’ll have moved 1,000,000 miles together!
