"Let's all take the pledge to live a healthier life."

Cumberland County Resident Mike Trout

Cumberland County, New Jersey was recently ranked by NJ.com as the most-unhealthiest county in the state (21st of 21 counties) due to rates of high obesity that often leads to diabetes, heart disease and other illnesses. As part of supporting the efforts by various Cumberland County health organizations to reverse this trend, the plan to proclaim May 2018 as Cumberland County Healthy Living Month was conceived.

During this month-long initiative – that will begin at 12:00 am on May 1 an end at 11:59.59 pm on May 31, 152,000 residents of Cumberland County will have the opportunity to engage in a variety of health and wellness activities across all municipalities and, through this collaboration, the men, women and children of the county will then be able to define and document their own personal health awareness strategies.

As a way to unite and energize all citizens, May 23 has been designated as Guinness Worlds Records Days when, during the course of the day, residents will seek to establish four world records, all under the umbrella of health and wellness, effectively elevating the county from last in the state to top of the world.

The Guinness World Records category being pursued will be “Group Health Awareness Lesson in multiple locations” with these proposed sub-categories:

  • CATEGORY I: Adolescents (10-19)
  • CATEGORIES II & III: Adults: Two categories: Male and Female (20 and older)
  • CATEGORY IV: Senior Citizens (65 and older)
