Through my involvement with the National Forum for Heart Disease & Stroke Prevention’s Move with the MayorTM initiative, all <CITY NAME> residents or employees of businesses within the city can have access to the Spark360/PeopleOne App for free.

Here is why:

  • It is important to focus on healthier futures for both our employees and members of our community. We know that by strengthening the community we create opportunities for people, families, and businesses to thrive.
  • It is more important than ever to do our part and be active community members, which means doing things to improve the lives of others; and caring about our community enough to change it.
  • The three cornerstones of my Move with the Mayor initiative are fitness and health, community engagement, and leadership development. Healthy individuals bring out leadership…which transforms organizations, cities, and states one at a time. The Spark360/PeopleOne app supports all three cornerstones.
