Success Travels

Sharing Healthy Living Initiatives from Communities that Know How to ChooseWell


Communities ChooseWell is all about making Success Travel. Champions in each participating community make success travel locally as they challenge those with influence to make it easy (and fun!) for everyone to be active and choose healthy foods. The document below highlights leading ChooseWell communities who lay down the tracks so that success stories about healthy living can travel across the entire province.
