About C-Fit Community

C-Fit Community is a new healthy and active living community initiative led by Chesterfield County to help improve the well-being and quality of life for county residents and visitors. It is an organization consisting of representatives of various county departments, valued partners and local organizations with an interest in improving our community. The focus of the initiative, originally begun as a partnership with Sports Backers, highlights overall wellness, including mental, emotional and physical health, for all who live, learn, work, worship and play in Chesterfield County.

Our Vision

To be a healthy, engaged and thriving community in which to live, learn, work, worship and play.

Our Mission

To create a culture of positive change that enhances the health, well-being and quality of life within Chesterfield County and its diverse population. We do this by collaborating and engaging with our residents, visitors and valued partners.

Our Goals

To optimize wellness that goes beyond the absence of illness. C-Fit Community has adopted the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s concept of wellness in developing its plans – defining wellness as having eight distinct dimensions: emotional, environmental, financial, intellectual, occupational, physical, social and spiritual

To secure vested partners representing these wellness dimensions, and then to coordinate county and community overall wellness events, programs, resources and other initiatives that will enable residents and visitors to better identify the opportunities available to them.
