HEALTH GAMES by healthy harrison

Healthy Harrison is partnering with the United Way to invest $100,000 into one Harrison County community to impact the increasing issue of obesity. The Health Games is a friendly competition between 5 neighborhoods with a focus of creating a more active, strong, and vibrant community. COVID-19 has caught us all by surprise; however, we are going to use this time to prepare a model for lasting change.

Our ultimate goal is to partner with a local community in Harrison County and develop a blueprint for health that can be replicated throughout the state of West Virginia.


$50,000 in cash to be used for community based programming.

200 Fitbit Inspire Devices to incentivize participation and motivate movement.

200 Good Measures Subscriptions, which provide personalized meal tracking and nutrition coaching.

WVU Virtual Classes, which include Yoga, Zumba, Pilates, Meditation, Tai Chi, Cardio, and Fusion.

OUR SPONSORS We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude towards the organizations that have made this project possible:
