Top 10 Active Living Heroes

What do a small town nurse, Republican governor and South Bronx community organizer have in common? They’re all part of the growing active living movement that is taking place in cities, towns and neighborhoods across America. This fall, to celebrate the Active Living Network’s five-year anniversary, we’re paying tribute to 10 active living heroes who are paving the way for change.

Of course, we couldn’t list all of our heroes. We couldn’t even list most of them, which means there are many other people whose efforts deserve recognition and praise. We hope you’ll write us about the people, projects and programs that we ought to know about so we can highlight their great work in the future.

But here’s a group of admirable active living advocates—some well-known, some not—from a certified planner who draws inspiration from kids’ renderings of their walking routes to a healthcare CEO who is soliciting developers to apply for Active Living Neighborhood Awards.
