ESMMKC Recoginized as a “Outstanding Community Friend” by SRTS SC!

Eat Smart Move More Kershaw County (ESMMKC) has been striving to make Kershaw County a healthier community. They were awarded a grant through the Healthy South Carolina Initiative to fund a county-wide trails and greenways plan. The county-wide trails and greenways plan will improve the access to physical activity by mapping out trails and greenways to connect residential areas. The planning process began in the fall of 2012, and results from the process were introduced at a public meeting in May 2013. ESMMKC members have been actively involved with all Safety Walk Audits in Kershaw County Schools. In addition, members played a key role with Jackson School’s Travel Plan and have been assisting at school health and safety fairs, which schools are organizing to reach the “Gold Partner” level status with the Resource Center.
