Shape Up Vashon, sponsored by FCM, promotes healthy lifestyles among the residents of Vashon Island, King County with an integrated community-based program that is educational, motivational and fun.
SUV collaborates with Island businesses, organizations and schools to improve the health of our community with measurable results. We offer activities to help members set and achieve their individual weight and fitness goals. With a volunteer committee of 20, we help Islanders form walking and other activity groups, pledge to exercise 5 times a week for 6/8 weeks for a national award, learn about healthier affordable eating, and decrease the risk of heart disease, diabetes and cancer. We provide incentives and awards for improved fitness and successful weight loss and offer a variety of health education classes. More about SUV can be found at www.shapeupvashon.org.
