What is Healthy Bridgeport?

Designed by residents, for our residents and beyond:

Healthy Bridgeport is the 4 pronged winning plan that will be implemented by team Bridgeport that works with children, adults and seniors for a healthier community and focuses on reducing obesity. 

Healthy Bridgeport is proud to be the 2020 Winner of the Healthy Harrison Health Games.


"Healthy Harrison partnered with WVU Medicine UHC, WVU, and The United Way of Harrison County to address one of the top, reoccurring issues identified in the Community Needs Assessment—Obesity."


Team Bridgeport realizes that getting healthy isn't a one size fits all approach. That's why our team has developed a plan that consists of four key elements: Community Activities, The Healthy Bridgeport App, Biggest Loser and 10% Takedown Challenge and a 5K Festival.  

We are excited and honored to be the winners of the 2020 Health Games Festival and are just getting started with the many wonderful things planned for Healthy Bridgeport
