Spring Hill has again been designated a Healthier Tennessee Community by the Governor’s Foundation for Health and Wellness, an organization dedicated to enabling and encouraging Tennesseans to lead healthier lives.

At a recent awards gala in Franklin, the City of Spring Hill was named a “Bronze 2019 Healthier Tennessee Community” based on local engagement, promotional efforts, and measurable progress to address critical health challenges. It’s one of only 33 Healthier Tennessee Communities in the state. Spring Hill first received the designation in December 2017.

“The Healthier Spring Hill Committee is dedicated to offering educational, creative and fun learning opportunities to the residents of Spring Hill,” said Spring Hill Recreation Manager Sonja Rine. “This year we are going for the gold and will focus on intergenerational programming. We want to get the whole family excited about a healthier lifestyle.”

Healthier Tennessee Communities is a signature Governor’s Foundation initiative that encourages cities, towns, counties, neighborhoods, and college campuses across Tennessee to implement sustainable, localized initiatives to improve nutrition, increase physical activity, and encourage tobacco cessation.

More than 200 elected officials, community leaders, and Healthier Tennessee Community committee members from across Tennessee attended the awards gala, which took place at Graystone Quarry in Franklin.

“We are grateful for the many citizen volunteers leading our Healthier Tennessee Communities,” said Governor’s Foundation CEO Richard Johnson. “Our success would not be possible without their extraordinary efforts and contributions.”

In addition to awarding 33 communities with a gold, silver, or bronze designation, the event also honored innovative initiatives and individual achievements.

The Foundation launched the Healthier Tennessee Communities initiative in March 2015 with nine pilot communities. Today, nearly 100 communities, neighborhoods, and college campuses are engaged with the program, and 33 have received the designation.
