Representatives of new Blue Zones Project approved entities gather at City Hall to be recognized by the City Council.

Blue Zones Project entered 2018 under full steam, as the well-being improvement initiative now counts more than 70,000 participants who have taken the Personal Pledge or attended Blue Zones Project activities.

The number of worksites, restaurants, schools, organizations and faith-based communities that have joined the movement has also swelled to more than 250, bringing the city closer to becoming a certified Blue Zones Community.
