About Us

YOU MAY ONLY EDIT WHAT IS SEEN BETWEEN THE RED LINES. IF YOU ACCIDENTALLY DELETE ONE OF THE RED LINES (OR SOMETHING OUTSIDE OF THEM), PLEASE CANCEL YOUR CHANGES AND TRY AGAIN.

------------------------------

The Healthy Lakes, Healthy Lives initiative is working with schools and community institutions in the Lakes Region to increase knowledge of and access to nutritious locally grown food. The community is increasing options for physical activity in elementary schools and after-school programs; for older youth, it is creating outing clubs at each middle and high school, offering opportunities to students not interested in traditional school sports to become engaged in less competitive ways of getting physically fit. To encourage increased physical activity by adults, the community is increasing signage for public trails and working with Lakes Region recreation departments, adult education centers, and private fitness facilities to offer subsidized memberships. The community is also  conducting public education campaigns promoting healthy foods, healthy beverages, and physical activity opportunities.
