The Mission Hill Health Movement wants to work with you to create a Healthier Hill 2020.
This summer, her doctor recommended that Alice Smith (not her real name) exercise to improve her chronic health conditions. Alice, a Mission Hill Senior, called the Mission Hill Health Movement and joined our free walking group. Her first day out was a struggle. As the regular walkers steamed ahead, the walk leader walked slowly with Alice, encouraging her and explaining the basics of walking for health. Over the next couple of months, Alice kept walking, saying she felt better and healthier. Her doctor measured the change also.
The 2 walking groups are just one of the programs the Mission Hill Health Movement provides so that we can improve and maintain our health. The three Mission Hill Farmers Markets organized by MHHM are very popular. A local business owner says she goes to the Farmers Markets several times a week during the summer to get local fruits and vegetables. While a Mission Hill Mom tells us, she depends on the Farmers Market's coupons, she gets from a local food support program, to give her children fresh fruit in the summer.
In 2020, the MHHM will support our neighbors’ health; from the opening of the Gore Street Garden which realizing a community vision to helping Senior neighbors age in community on the Hill. These activities take money. The staff and volunteers appreciate your past support be it just attending an event or using to service or donating funds. As the year ends, please help create a Healthier Hill in 2020 by donating to the Mission Hill Health Movement.
Mission Hill Health Movement needs your support to keep these and other programs going. All donations support the health of Mission Hill residents, workers and visitors. Please give generously.
We look forward to working with you, our neighbors and workers in 2020
