Nominate an Action Hero

The Vision2BActive campaign is seeking nominees for Action Heroes in hopes of recognizing people in San Bernardino County who have made an impact on community wellness by participating in physical activity or promoting physical fitness.

Examples of Action Heroes include a person who has started their own walking club in their neighborhood; a teacher who encourages their students to be healthy by being active; a business person who incorporates physical fitness into the workday of their employees; a child who encourages friends and classmates to stay active; or person who changed their life or improved their own wellness by being physically active.

Nominate an Action Hero at www.Vision2BActive.com or contact Bernadette Beltran at BBeltran@dph.sbcounty.gov or 909-387-6614. Anonymous nominations of Action Heroes will also be accepted.

Vision2BActive is a campaign of the Countywide Vision to improve health and wellness in San Bernardino County by encouraging residents to increase their physical activity and connecting them to existing recreational programs, amenities and activities in their communities.

Only 23 percent of San Bernardino County adults and 34 percent of our youth get the recommended amount of physical activity, according to the most recent data from the California Health Interview Survey. In its 2008 issuance of “Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans,” the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recommended adults get 150 minutes a week of physical activity and children ages 5 to 17 were encouraged to move at least 60 minutes a day.

Vision2BActive.com is an interactive resource that provides residents with information about physical activity events, fitness tips and a GIS map featuring places to be active in the county.

The Countywide Vision was developed by the community in 2010-11 and adopted by the Board of Supervisors and the San Bernardino Council of Governments Board of Directors in June 2011 in order to create a roadmap for the future of San Bernardino County, which includes creating a healthy and prosperous future for all who live, work and play here. Vision2BActive is the second public campaign of the Countywide Vision Project following the successful Vision2Read literacy initiative that started in September 2015.

Four-year colleges and universities, community colleges, technical/trade schools, businesses, government agencies and non-profit organizations are welcome to participate in this event at no charge. The focus is college and career readiness.

This event is a collaborative effort of the Colton Joint Unified School District and City of Colton with sponsorship from the law firm of Atkinson, Andelson, Loya, Ruud & Romo, Horace Mann Insurance (Marcos Mata), Farmers Insurance (RossVeckey Agency) and Omnitrans.

“We are excited and proud to bring the CJUSD College and Career Fair to our community for a second year,” said Superintendent Jerry Almendarez. “Last year’s event was a huge success with more than 3,000 in attendance and we are looking forward to another great event where our students can get the information they need to plan for the future.”

“The Mayor and council are excited to partner with CJUSD for the Second Annual College and Career Fair,” added Colton Mayor Richard De La Rosa. “We are always committed to assisting the district’s students with a jump start to higher education opportunities.”

The fair will provide students and families a “one-stop shop” where they can meet representatives from four-year colleges and universities, community colleges and technical/trade schools as well as business professionals who will be on hand to discuss a wide variety of career pathways. Workshops also will be presented to help students to plan for the future.

New this year will be a “STEAM” activity center where younger students can explore hands-on science, technology, engineering, art and math activities.

A limited number of booths are still available at no charge. Please note that all presenters must showcase materials that are appropriate for school-aged children and intended to help them learn more about possible career and college choices.
