The Healthy Communities Collaborative has been working for the past 4 1/2 years to help create good health where residents, live, work, learn and play.
Through SHIP funding, we are working on making the Healthy Choice the Easy Choice! See the You Tube Video below.
Below are report summaries divided out by sectors – Worksites, Schools, Community, and Health Care. We are proud of our partners and our staff assigned to work on these initiatives though Statewide Health Improvement Program funding through the Minnesota Department of Health.
The work we are doing through SHIP improves health and saves money by building stronger communities. Our local communities chose SHIP strategies that are best for them. The result? Real, community-led improvements in healthy eating, physical activity and reduced commercial tobacco use.
Hutchinson Community Running Group is an inspiring group! This user based group started with a run on National Running Day around June 6th with a few people in Hutchinson getting together for an evening run. Since then, they have met every Wednesday with the hope of encouraging others to run with them. They used the tag #1of100 for their goal of getting 100 runners. Their goal was achieved last Wednesday- August 22nd with over 100 community runners showing up to join their weekly social fun run. What a great example of a group of people teaming up in their community to promote wellness and outreach!
