Health care organizations and leaders recognize the growing role that alliances of churches, mosques, synagogues and other faiths institutions can play in creating healthy communities. The Fort Washington Collegiate Church understands the vital role we can play in the movement to decrease the spread of diseases and increase the number of people living long, healthy lives. This commitment is realized through our Health Matters Campaign which equips people with the tools to implement a healthy lifestyle that includes proper nutrition, physical fitness, lower health risk, and the education needed to “reach, teach, and release us from life-diminishing lifestyle practices.” Recognizing the power in partnerships, our goal is to establish a major coalition of strategic partners: (1) Corporate; (2) Government (3) Funding Agency (4) Non-Profit. We know that the challenge of creating healthy communities can be a hard task. But we believe that together, we can do what is hard and achieve what is great!!
We are very proud to partner with First Lady Michelle Obama’s, Let’s Move! Initiative and the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services in championing our Health Matters Initiative.
We can do not great things, only small things with great love. It is not how much you do but how much love you put into doing it.
