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.
