Take 12! Steps for Community Health in 2015

12 months, 12 healthy goals. Take 12 is a free health and wellness awareness program. Take 12 helps you make better decisions about your health one month at a time.

The 2015 Take 12 calendars have been delivered to Fairfax County Board of Supervisors by FCPF director of development, Margaret Thaxton. Download your 2015 Calendar now or pick up one up at Chairman Bulova’s or your District Supervisors offices to enjoy monthly health tips, recipes and more - while supplies last!

Each month is dedicated to one healthy goal with credible information for achieving it and a guide for forming healthy habits. Build upon each goal from month to month and by the end of December, you will have developed a sustainable balance in your health.
