About COACH (Chesterfield Coalition for Active Children)

The Chesterfield County Coalition for Active Children's vision is "healthy kids becoming healthy adults." Our mission is to create a healthy future by engaging children, youths and families in making healthy choices throughout their lives.

The coalition works to:

  • Promote a healthy future for children and their families
  • Provide education and awareness about the benefits of good nutrition and physical activity

The group began in 2003 and gained its nonprofit, 501(c)3 status in 2009.
