Good nutrition and exercise in childhood lead to a healthy, vibrant adulthood.
We're improving the health of our entire community through resources, support and investment in child welfare, nutrition and fitness, mental health services and preventative screenings.
To get there, we support partners that promote active lifestyles, advocate for initiatives that reduce tobacco use and provide wellness resources for children and adults.
Jump IN is a collective effort that brings together civic, academic and business groups around a shared vision and measurable outcomes to reduce and prevent childhood obesity in Central Indiana.
Jump IN focuses its efforts on school-based initiatives, employer wellness, public education, awareness, resources and community-based policies to create healthy places, neighborhoods and communities.
Join us in advocating for services and legislation that support the wellbeing of our neighbors and a healthy life for Central Indiana.Learn More
