About This Campaign

The community of collaboration is the headliner of this wide-open wellbeing tour, strengthened with unique genres of radically different paths that lead to greater access to fitness. It’s a festival of glorious partnerships rooted in gratitude meeting people right where they are on their journey!Β 

Our best idea was to open this opportunity up to everyone and invite them to think freely while we issued a full creative license.Β  What we received blew us away – people who are deeply passionate and fully committed to elevating the community by sharing their craft through the Fitness & Fun awards. Holding 34 free events during the month of July gives people a wide variety of options to find fitness! There’s another level of partnership as this new community calendar is utilized by additional partners: Medical Providers, State Parks, County Government, Chamber of Commerce, State Office of Outdoor Recreation, and Community Action.

Access is another element of our work.Β  Check out Jessica Mae Wilson’s compelling story on the Wall of Love as you watch her video and learn about how she’s working in her Habitat for Humanity Community to create a safe and accessible space for fitness and social gatherings.

Conversations are happening around how we as a community can provide better experiences and improve access to fitness for people with disabilities. A convening of interested stakeholders is scheduled to thoughtfully consider our environment, the strengths we have, and ideas that we can begin formalizing as a group.

Check back often as the tour continues and new leaders with meaningful projects emerge!
