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:
Bring awareness to the community about the long-term health risks associated with being overweight or obese
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.
