Healthy Hometown Committee Forming

The City of Ridgeland is forming a Healthy Hometown Committee to enhance healthy living in our community. Ridgeland earned the Healthiest Hometown Award in 2013 and was awarded $50,000 by the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Mississippi Foundation. With those funds, the City was able to purchase multiple pieces of outdoor exercise equipment and enhance public fitness facilities at several locations in Ridgeland.

We want to win this award again and do some exciting things for citizens with the funds, and we want to have an ongoing effort of a working committee that seeks to keep healthy living a focus in Ridgeland. We will be working on the award application duing January and February. After the application is submitted, the committee will have an ongoing commitment to meet regularly. Committee members will be publicly recognized for their participation, and it will be a rewarding experience of investing in the current and future health of your community.

If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity to serve your community, you may contact Mayor McGee at 601-856-7113 or mayor.mcgee@ridgelandms.org.
