    Our Partnership with Healthier TN

  • Crossville/Cumberland Healthier TN Receives $2,500 Grant

    CROSSVILLE, Tenn. (August 10, 2018) – A $2,500 grant has been awarded to Crossville/Cumberland County’s Healthier Tennessee Committee by The Governor’s Foundation for Health & Wellness.

    “I am very proud of the hard work that the Crossville/Cumberland County committee has put in to encourage healthy behavior in the community,” said Healthier Tennessee Regional Director Colleen Wright.

    The grant was in support of the Small Starts for Families Grant. To earn it, the Crossville/Cumberland team raised awareness at community events by signing up members for the Small Starts for Families e-newsletter and partnered with UT Extension Office in support of nutritional education. This is in support of the statewide initiative to move more, eat smarter, and cut out tobacco.

    Healthier Tennessee Crossville/Cumberland County is offering a Healthier Tennessee Crossville Fit 15 community race series. Participants who run or walk in three 5K races will earn a Finisher’s Medal will presented at the Reindeer Run in December. There are four remaining 5k opportunities to earn the medal; Dash for Derek at the Community Complex on September 22; Panther Dash 5k on November 10 at Stone Memorial High School, the Gobble Wobble Fun Run at the Community Complex on November 22, and the Reindeer Run 5K at the TAD Center on December 8.

    Crossville is one of 48 communities to be designated as a Healthier Tennessee Community by the Governor’s Foundation for Health and Wellness. The Healthier Tennessee Communities initiative takes a grassroots approach to improving Tennesseans’ health by engaging citizens and local leaders in cities, towns, counties, neighborhoods and college campuses across the state.
