The Healthy Places initiative has helped us build partnerships and a stronger community! With this foundation, we will continue to work together to make big things happen.

Here’s what’s next:

  • Co-creation of a new organization dedicated to creating a healthy, thriving community through collaboration
  • Investment of $1-5 million dollars in Lamar to transform its places and programs to INSPIRE more kids and families to enjoy and explore the great outdoors
  • Commitment to a community-led movement by continuing to invest in community engagement efforts and adult and youth leadership development
