SHIP is a statewide health initiative aimed at improving the overall health of parents, children, and the whole community by increasing physical activity, decreasing obesity, and decreasing tobacco use and smoke exposure.
As part of this effort, each county awarded funding is responsible for addressing 9 strategy areas in their community. The Live Wright program was launched in 2009 and a Community Leadership Team was formed to identify, facilitate, and implement evidence-based strategies and interventions to help Wright County citizens live longer, healthier lives.
For more information on this program, please call 763-682-7460.
In partnership with Sherburne, Benton, and Stearns Counties, we have been working hard to create our first-ever Regional Active Transportation Plan. Your support and feedback are an integral piece of our plan! Below are two ways you can share your thoughts, suggestions, and ideas.
Check out our interactive mapping tool to identify specifics routes you walk, run, or bike on and identify barriers and areas for improvement.
