Activate Tucson was created in 2004 as a result of the Mayor's Healthy Tucson and the YMCA's Pioneering Healthier Communities initiatives. This community led coalition has continued to grow and expand and demonstrates that we are much stronger together than apart. As a group we work to influence policy, systems and environmental change to have a positive impact on the health and well being of our community and it's members.
To educate, motivate and facilitate long-term collaboration with business, government, schools, communities, neighborhoods, social service agencies and the media toward making the greater Tucson area a healthier place to live work and play and to advocate for policies that support that ideal.
To influence public policy, promote and support information and education on healthier, active lifestyles, and develop and deliver informational
and motivational messages
