Healthy Communities

Promoting health has always been an underlying aspect of Delaware Greenways mission. But not until recently has it moved closer to the center of what we do. With obesity and overweight and the chronic diseases associated with those conditions rising on pace with the rest of the nation (about 1 in 3 Delaware adults are overweight or obese), the importance of enabling healthy lifestyles is more important than ever.

Accordingly, Delaware Greenways is doing things about it:

We must make changes so the troubling projection - that the generation of kids growing-up today will live shorter, less healthy lives than their parents - does not become a reality.
