Healthy Harford is the healthy communities initiative of Harford County. Founded in 1993 as a non-profit 501c3, Healthy Harford is a coalition of local government agencies, businesses, non profits, and citizens dedicated to improving the health of Harford County residents through education, policy changes, and improvements in the built environmental. Promoting local resources, services, and business that support a healthy lifestyle is a large part of our vision to help make Harford County the healthiest community in Maryland.
We believe that healthy lifestyle choices are an individual decision, but as a community we can work together to create an environment where making the healthy choice, is the easy choice.
Thanks to Everyone for Making Healthy Harford Day 2014 a Huge Success
Between 1,500 and 2,000 people met under beautiful sunny skies to enjoy our 4th Annual Healthy Harford Day. This record crowd reflects Harford County resident’s growing interest in healthy lifestyles. Healthy Harford has grown in attendance every year since its inception in 2010 which prompted us to move to this new location at 119 Hays Street this year. In addition we added a second performance stage and extended the event’s hours so visitors would have the opportunity to fully engage with and participate in everything Healthy Harford Day had to offer. Check out our slide show to see some of the amazing performances, vendors, and educators on hand that day.
At the end of the day, we are just thrilled that this year’s event introduced so many people to the interesting and diverse resources Harford County offers to support healthy lifestyles. We hope that everyone who came enjoyed a fun, family-friendly day full of activity, and we look forward to an even bigger celebration for Healthy Harford Day 2015.
Of course Healthy Harford Day would not have been possible without the support of our sponsors, volunteers, and the Healthy Harford Team. A special thanks to our 2014 sponsors highlighted below. A special thanks to Brooms Bloom Dairy for donating the stage for the event and Jack and Posie Thompson for delivering it. We’d also like to thank those special volunteers without whom this event would not be possible: Stage Manager Martha Valentine and Logistics organizer Captain Keith Warner.
Every journey begins with the first step. Start on your path to a healthier life today – Healthy Harford promises to be there to support you, every step of the way.
