According to Fran Butler-Cohen, CEO of Family Health Centers of San Diego, “¡Vive tu vida! Get Up! Get Moving!® reminds us that people of all ages and sizes can have fun incorporating physical activity into their daily lives. Dance, learn a new activity, or walk with family and friends.

Delgado, President and CEO of the National Alliance for Hispanic Health, the nation’s leading Hispanic health advocacy group, and author of The Latina Guide to Health and the Buena Salud® Guide book series.

“We are proud to support the National Alliance for Hispanic Health in providing community-based health and nutrition outreach,” said Robert Forrester, president of Newman’s Own Foundation. “One of the Foundation’s priorities is the support of nonprofits whose focus is on nutrition, and ¡Vive tu vida!
