The Get Movin’ program was established in 2004 by a community partnership of public and private agencies to combat youth obesity in Snohomish County. That partnership has grown into a broad-based community coalition to help improve the health of Snohomish County residents by encouraging them to adopt a healthier lifestyle. The participation in Get Movin’ has steadily increased each year, growing from 612 registered participants in 2004 to more than 3,000. The 10th year of Get Movin’ is dedicated to one of its greatest champions, Caroline Brown. Caroline was a passionate, community health advocate who was instrumental in the formation and success of Get Movin’.
Get Movin’ is supported by grants, sponsors and local businesses. The 2013 Get Movin’ event would not be possible without the support of: Swedish/Edmonds, the YMCA of Snohomish County, the Everett Clinic, Molina Healthcare, the Daily Herald, Everett Transit, Edmonds Family Medicine, the cities of Everett, Lynnwood and Marysville and the many businesses and agencies the provide reward coupons and staff.
