The City of Sacramento has launched their beautiful new outdoor Fitness Court in Roosevelt Park, joining the National Fitness Campaign to fund healthy infrastructure and make world-class fitness free for everyone.

In early October, Vice Mayor Steve Hansen joined Sandy Sharon, Senior Vice President and Area Manager from Kaiser Permanente, and NFC Founder Mitch Menaged for a Launch Party to celebrate the city’s effort to promote healthy living for residents.

Kaiser Permanente, nationally recognized as one of America’s leading health care providers and not-for-profit health plans, has partnered with the City of Sacramento and NFC to pioneer this incredible program in the state’s capital.
