Wellness Initiative

August 2, 2016


The mission of the Oklahoma City Community Foundation Wellness Initiative is to create a culture of health in central Oklahoma, with a focus on improving health indicators, where making healthy lifestyle choices is simple, accessible, easy – and the cool thing to do. It seeks to work with organizations in developing innovative community-based programs that motivate people to engage in a sustainable program of daily exercise, healthy eating and other wellness activities and inspires them to adopt a healthy lifestyle that minimizes the potential of future illness and disease. The initiative is about preventing the development of lifestyle-related diseases by focusing on these daily numbers to live by – OK5210: 1) 5 or more fruits or vegetables, 2) 2 hours or less of screen time, 3) 1 hour of physical activity and 4) 0 sugar-sweetened beverages.
