Mississippi Community Health Centers (MS-CHCs), present the 65 x 65 Obesity Challenge. We recognize obesity as an epidemic in Mississippi that contributes to the chronic health conditions resulting in decreased lifestyle mobility and increased health care costs. MS-CHCs are taking a long-term approach to reduce weight and increase healthy lifestyles by launching an initiative to move 65,000 Mississippians out of obesity by 2065.


The 65 x 65 Obesity Challenge is not only open to current community health center patients; we intend for this campaign to reach all Mississippians. MS-CHCs not only provide primary health care to underserved populations; but also, those without health insurance, Medicare/Medicaid and private health insurance can find all the primary health care services necessary to maintain health and wellness.

The 20x65x65 Race & Health Fair – One Step Forward, Two Less Bites is a multi-city race and health fair to kick off National Health Center Week. This year’s theme for Nation Health Center Week is “Celebrating America’s Health Centers: The Key to Healthier Communities” Mississippi Community Health Centers are hosting local races and health fairs on August 12, 2017 to help encourage our communities to take One Step Forward and Two Less Bites.


The feature 20x65x65 Race & Health Fair is being held at the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame in Jackson, MS with race distances of 5k, 10k and 15k for runners of all levels. At the same time as the feature race, 15 other 5k races are being held throughout Mississippi at local community health centers, making this the largest one-day, multi-5k race of its kind. We want you to come out and walk, jog or run while learning more about community health centers and how they can help you begin the journey to a fitter, healthier you! Find your race and health fair here.
