A letter from our Board President, Nadene Stein:

Dear Friend,

Have you heard about Giving Tuesday? It was created to give focus to the spirit of giving and the people who need our help. Waltham is truly a special community that I am proud to call home and the place where I have dedicated my career. Our community is a vibrant place to live, work, learn and play.

As we continue through the holiday season, I hope you will consider a donation, of any amount, to a cause that is important to you. One cause that is important to me is Healthy Waltham, where I am Board President.

I have been involved with Healthy Waltham since its inception over 10 years ago. I have seen the good work that this small organization has done to encourage healthy habits–eating nutritious foods and getting regular exercise. This is of course hard for all of us, and can be especially hard for people of limited incomes. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is a national concern and perhaps one of the toughest health challenges we have faced in the past 30 years. More information continues to come out about the role of diet and exercise in preventing diseases.

More than ever, we need your commitment to continue and expand the efforts of Healthy Waltham in reaching all Waltham residents, but especially those of limited means. We have had a busy year and are ready to expand our work in 2016 with a new Executive Director and renewed commitments from several sponsors. Now, we need your support too.

Please join me today, Giving Tuesday, or any day, with your gift to Healthy Waltham, to ensure that health and wellness efforts will continue in Waltham. Please see the bottom of this email for how to give.

Best wishes to all for a happy and healthy holiday season and new year!

Sincerely,

Nadene B. Stein, PhD

President, Healthy Waltham Board of Directors
