Move & Improve Neptune
Supporting Healthier Choices

Move & Improve Neptune is an exciting new initiative—a collaboration of local community volunteers, backed by national efforts (including CDC funding) in a movement to create healthier places where people live, learn, work, and play.  The purpose is to create a healthier environment with healthier community members.  Strategies, policies and environmental changes will be occurring throughout the next year and a half to address various issues that affect our community–including include physical activity, health & nutrition and tobacco use.  It’s an exciting time in the Township as we help the next generation understand how to live healthier lives.
