You might recall that back in February we highlighted Denver, Colo., Mayor Michael Hancock as the winner in the large city category of the U.S. Conference of Mayors’ 2014 Childhood Obesity Prevention Awards.

Yesterday, Mayor Hancock and the Denver Department of Environmental Health accepted the grant for their program, “Healthy Childcare Makes a Healthy Start,” which increases the number of Denver’s more than 600 childcare centers that incorporate evidence-based healthy eating and active living (HEAL) policies and activities into everyday operations.

You can read more about yesterday’s event in this Denver Post article. And make sure you check out the video highlighting Denver’s innovative program.

Congratulations, Mayor Hancock!
