Keeping those New Year’s resolutions about eating better and exercising more are going to be a little easier for many Galvestonians this year. Transforming Galveston, a new health initiative, supported by the Centers for Disease Control, kicks off this weekend with an array of activities open to everyone who lives or works in Galveston.
“Every community has health challenges, but in Galveston, there are also so many opportunities for healthy, active living,” said Christine Arcari, the UTMB epidemiologist spearheading Transforming Galveston. “You can walk on the seawall, go to the beach or take free classes at the city’s recreation centers. We want people to see that it doesn’t have to cost money to get up off the couch and be active.”
