The American Heart Association also recognized two Cleveland County churches with the Gold level Fit Friendly Award for their work to promote a heart healthy lifestyle.  The two churches that received the award are Long Branch Baptist Church of Grover and Washington Missionary Baptist Church of Shelby.  To be a recipient of the Gold level Fit Friendly Award, these churches had to meet the following criteria:
• Offer members physical activity options at the church
• Increase healthy eating options at the church
• Promote a wellness culture in the church
• Implement at least six criteria outlined by the American Heart Association in the areas of physical activity, nutrition and culture
The Cleveland County Health Department and the Alliance for Health of Cleveland County, Inc. would like to congratulate and thank these individuals and churches for working tirelessly to promote heart healthy lifestyles through physical activity and healthy eating!
