History of Start R.I.G.H.T.
Start R.I.G.H.T. was born out of the City of Riverside’s Fit, Fresh, & Fun Forum, which is a group of local professionals that work together to “support a healthy environment which encourages residents to seek Fit, Fresh, and Fun alternatives for a healthy lifestyle.” Start R.I.G.H.T. was created to address the need for a systematic approach to providing education and opportunities to improve the obesity rates of residents of Riverside.
