Active SWV is a perfect example of a regional approach to implementing the priorities areas, strategies and tactics from the WV Physical Activity Plan to fit a local environment.  Relying on all-sector leadership, Active SWV’s approach to promoting physical activity while focusing on economic development is a model that can be used throughout the state.  The WV Physical Activity Plan is pleased ​to be a partner with Active SWV as we strive to increase physical activity opportunities and participation in southern West Virginia.
