Dear Partners,

I am pleased to share LiveWell Colorado’s 2016 Annual Report with you all. The stories in this report represent but a snapshot of the many ways LiveWell partnered with organizations and individuals throughout the state in 2016. Our mission to increase access to healthy eating and active living by removing barriers that inequitably and disproportionately affect low-income communities and people of color—and our actions as an organization—are fully complemented by many community partners who strive to advance this work in their neighborhoods, schools, towns, and counties. In addition to implementing programs with dozens of partners across the state, LiveWell also worked to promote and shine a light on people or situations that demonstrate commitment and innovation. We also advocated for and mobilized others around key policy initiatives and opportunities.

We are proud of what we have accomplished in 2016 and grateful to the many partners who make achieving access to healthy eating and active living a part of their life’s work. We understand that the road before us is a long one, and the work is more of a journey than a destination. But that reality does not diminish our sense of urgency, as many Coloradans are suffering due to a lack of healthy options and environments. For our state to reach its full economic, educational, and environmental potential we must ensure that our culture of health extends to those with fewer resources and opportunities.

Thank you for your continued support and partnership in this important work!

Sincerely,

Gabriel Guillaume
President and CEO, LiveWell Colorado
