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.

Public health agencies team up to hit a “Home Run for Health”

It’s going to be a banner night for public health when two of the largest Southern California counties’ baseball and Public Health teams face off on the field and hit a “Home Run for Health” at San Manuel Stadium in San Bernardino on August 10.

San Bernardino County Department of Public Health, Riverside County Public Health, and the California Health Collaborative have all joined the effort to spread a message of good health by offering FREE admission to the public when the Inland Empire 66ers host the Lake Elsinore Storm August 10 at the 66ers’ San Manuel Stadium, located at 280 South E Street in San Bernardino.

“The best thing about this event will be all the health information that will be made available to fans. Our staff will be there to showcase our programs and the great services and resources we provide to residents every day,” said Trudy Raymundo, Director of San Bernardino County Department of Public Health.

Fans are invited to visit the locations below to pick up their vouchers. One voucher can be redeemed for four (4) tickets (limit 2 vouchers/8 tickets).
