Ascedia and Active Across America partner to Kick It UpTM
Strategic partnership focuses on raising awareness of healthy lifestyle resources
Milwaukee, WI – Ascedia and Active Across America have teamed up to develop Get Active Today, a community-based, health promotion and awareness program focused on empowering adults and engaging children in healthy, active lifestyles by showcasing the resources within our community.
“Statistics about poor health related to poor diet and physical inactivity surround us.” noted Meg Miller, the content director and co-creator of Get Active Today. “Just as there are many causes for the current health crisis, there need to be many solutions. Get Active Today is an engaging community resource developed for mainstream to positively impact behavior.”
The creators of Get Active Today had the expertise to develop the content and framework for Get Active Today, but lacked the expertise in developing an online community, noted Deanne Monaghan, program co-creator. They approached Ascedia when they realized Dan Early and Mark Roller, principals of Ascedia, has the vision for aggregating content and making Get Active Today a living breathing, viral community.
Ascedia has been developing interactive solutions for a wide variety of businesses, including travel and hospitality, healthcare and medical services, manufacturing, non-profit, and retail businesses since September 2000. “Ascedia has joined with Active Across America to bring forward a much needed resource and interactive online community for families and those looking to live a more active and healthy lifestyle. Ascedia plans to grow Get Active Today’s digital offering with social, mobile and community engagement over the next months,” said Sara Santiago, President, Roll Mobile.
