At Live Healthy Red Wing, we believe that all residents deserve access to physical activity and nutrition, every single day. Furthermore, we know that it takes a network of people to make positive change possible. Because this connects everything we do, we collaborate with many local partners to bring the healthiest future possible to our home.
So read on, and learn more about our work.
After holding surveys over the past few years, to listen and learn what issues our Hispanic neighbors are facing, plans are starting to take shape. Due to what we learned, LHRW, Hispanic Outreach, and HACER organized a Latino Leadership Training Program earlier this year. Through the program, six emerging young leaders are developing concrete plans to build local change in their neighborhoods.

Our projects range from community gardens and healthy breakfasts to park renovations, street improvements, and improving local policies. Because of our diverse work, we always have several projects going on at once.
Last year, Live Healthy Red Wing funded 11 unique and important projects in our community to encourage healthy living for everyone.
While some focused on healthy eating, others made it easier to get physical active. Another group of projects focused on lowering barriers for all of our neighbors.
Projects included a pilot boat-building course at Red Wing High School, improvements to the disc golf course at Memorial Park, building a beginner mountain bike trail at Memorial Park, replacing snowshoe bindings for Twin Bluff Middle School students and many more!
Funding for mini-grants has been exhausted. Thank you to the 11 grant recipients for completing their projects and making Red Wing a stronger community!
