The movement to combat childhood obesity in Boulder is now one step closer to officially being considered on the November election ballot. Earlier this summer, over 9,000 Boulder residents demonstrated their support for healthy Boulder kids by signing a petition to increase access to healthy foods, nutrition education, and physical activity, through revenue from a tax on sugary drinks.
A few weeks ago, the Boulder City Council voted unanimously in favor of this initiative. We are incredibly thankful for their overwhelming support and their consideration of the will of the voters. Stay tuned as we await the final vote of approval to advance this important health initiative to the November ballot.
It’s going to take all of us, working together, to ensure a victory at the ballot box this November. AHA is committed to this work, but we need support from people like you to vote in favor of this critical public health measure. Join our campaign to combat childhood obesity and support healthy Boulder families!
