Get Healthy With #0to60

The President’s Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition (PCFSN), in partnership with the National Foundation on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition, is commemorating its 60th Anniversary with the launch of the #0to60 Campaign! 

The #0to60 campaign seeks to inspire all Americans to accelerate their journey to a healthier, active lifestyle.  A mobile ready #0to60 website is now available and can be accessed on any desktop, laptop or mobile-ready device.  A #0to60 App is also available for download from the App Store for all iOS devices and soon will be available for Android devices.  A  History of Exercise video, featuring First Lady Michelle Obama, has likewise recently been launched, which you can access through the website. 

 

The number “60” is not only significant for the 60th anniversary of the PCFSN, but it represents three important health facts:

  • Children should get 60 minutes of physical activity a day,
  • Habits take about 60 days to form and ….
  • 60 seconds is all it takes to decide to start living healthier today!!

 

In a nutshell, the message of #0to60 is :               

  •  MOVE MORE
  •  EAT HEALTHIER
  • LIVE STRONGER

HOPE VI/Phase IV Homeownership: Building the American Dream

Owning your own home has always been the "American Dream".  A home can provide a sense of family, place and pride.  But finding a home that's affordable can be challenging and understanding how to finance a home can be overwhelming!! Fortunately, the HOPE VI Homeownership Program can help!  

Nine new, affordable homes are available for sale in East Covington. Located on both 10th and Robbins Streets, between Greenup and Prospect Streets, these newly constructed, energy efficient homes are made possible through funding from the HUD/HOPE VI Jacob Price Revitalization Grant.     . 

The HOPE VI Homeownership Program is especially designed for low-income families who prefer home ownership over renting.  The program provides a zero interest, 100% forgivable second mortgage loan to qualified home buyers. Program eligibility is based on income and household size, along with other criteria.  Prospective home buyers must secure a first mortgage from a reputable lender and complete an agency-approved home buyer training program.  Credit counseling services are also available, as needed.

A Success Story

Housing Authority of Covington Receives the NKU/Mayerson Student Philanthropy Award

The Housing Authority of Covington (HAC) was awarded a $500 mini- grant from Northern Kentucky University’s Mayerson Student Philanthropy Project.   The award was presented April 18, 2017 at NKU’s Scripps Howard Center for Civic Engagement.  The grant partners college classes with non-profit organizations to work together on educational initiatives surrounding areas of community need. 

This year, NKU Social Work students selected Golden Tower, a senior residential facility, for the award.  Thanks to the Mayerson grant, various health and fitness programs will be offered to residents throughout May 2017 to help them “age in place.”  Funding for the award was made possible by the Mayerson Foundation and CITI/Florence. 

Dr. Suk-hee Kim, Professor of Social Work, and HAC staff members are pictured here following the award ceremony.  We are very grateful to Dr. Kim, NKU, the Mayerson Foundation, and CITI/Florence for their support of our mission!
