Move with the Mayor

Mayors use Move with the Mayor™ to encourage residents to protect and improve their health and to make their communities more active and accessible. In 2020, mayors are using Move with the Mayor™ messaging, policy recommendations and other tools to empower and protect community members from COVID-19 and improve cardiovascular health and health equity.

MOVE WITH THE MAYOR™ (MWTM)

A national initiative that works with mayors across the country to challenge their communities to be more physically active. Mayors encourage their communities to be physically active to lower their chances of heart disease and its risk factors like high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and diabetes.

In 2020, our focus remains the same although the unprecedented nature of COVID-19 has shifted the way we work with cities and engage communities to maintain everyone’s safety. We are excited to announce the continuance of MWTM as a virtual challenge this year. The National Forum has devised a new plan to guide cities as the challenge kicks off in August.
