We believe that all residents deserve access to physical activity and nutrition, every single day. Furthermore, we know that it takes a network to make positive change possible. Because this connects everything we do, we work with many local partners to make our future a healthy one.
Our partners include: Red Wing Family YMCA, ArtReach, Mayo Clinic, Community Education & Recreation, City of Red Wing, Minnesota State College–Southeast, Hispanic Outreach, Sunnyside Elementary School, and Goodhue County Health and Human Services.
