The goal is to:
Increase awareness of public parks and recreational facilities.
Promote access and make it convenient for people to find places to be physically active.
Encourage walking and biking
The Anoka County Statewide Health Improvement Program (SHIP) is part of Minnesota's SHIP, and integral part of Minnesota's nation-leading 2008 health reform law, which strives to help Anoka County residents lead longer, healthier lives by preventing the chronic disease risk factors of physical inactivity, poor nutrition, and tobacco use and exposure. Go Anoka County was made possible through SHIP funding from the Minnesota Department of Health.
