LiveWell Wheat Ridge

heal_biking2LiveWell Wheat Ridge was formed in 2005 to help reduce the impact of adult and childhood obesity in Wheat Ridge. While LiveWell funding has ended, this work continues through the leadership of the JeffCo Community Health Improvement Network which is dedicated to increasing physical activity, healthy eating, and psychosocial well-being.

The coalition—made up of residents, agencies, school partners, elected officials, and representatives from the business and health care sectors—supports community-based approaches to creating healthier environments, with a focus on those who are most impacted by poor health. The group prides itself on creating strategies informed by scientific and evidence-based approaches, and has achieved many positive outcomes for the community, including successfully lobbying the city to designate specific funds for active transportation.
