The mission of the Mayor’s Fitness Council Community Committee is to promote wellness programs and community activities that motivates people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities to live a healthy lifestyle.

Through extensive partnerships and teamwork with public, private, and non-profit leaders, our committee engages and empowers communities to seek physical activity, engage in mindfulness opportunities, and adopt good nutritional traits.

Key projects that the committee focuses on is the Mayor’s Fitness Council Siclovia Reclovia twice per year – once in the spring and once in the fall and Mayor’s Fitness Council Endorsements for programs and events taking place in San Antonio that primarily focus on physical health, emotional wellness and better nutrition activities.

The Community Committee is an open committee that does not require a special appointment or membership to attend. All meetings are public meetings. The committee meets on the second Thursday of each month from 3:00 – 5:00 pm at rotating locations. Please email, Community Committee Chair, Bert Pickell – bpickell@satx.rr.com for more information.
