The City of Burleson is dedicated to the education, promotion, participation, and growth of healthy lifestyles and choices for all of its 43,625 residents. For this purpose, Mayor Ken Shetter established the Be Healthy Burleson Initiative and laid a foundation for health and wellness throughout the community. Starting inside the city scope with parks, hike/bike trails, events, and moving outward with large-scale partnerships including a variety of health and wellness related opportunities for the community, the Be Healthy Burleson campaign continues its mission for a more educated, active, healthy, and fun city! To see Burleson’s health related opportunities for you and your family, please visit our calendar.
The Be Healthy Burleson Initiative has received a tremendous amount of support from local businesses. Without the support from our businesses, the success of the Be Healthy Burleson Initiative would not be possible. The support is reflected directly into the well-being of the Burleson community. The Be Healthy Burleson Initiative has been able to provide community fitness opportunities, education programs/seminars, monthly health awareness events/activities throughout the community, support to other local health & wellness non-profit programs and has been able to start developing a Be Healthy Burleson Certification program to be implemented in Burleson restaurants, schools, businesses, congregations, and grocery stores. We are very excited for our future of health here in Burleson!
