Cause. Community. Change.

It’s an unfortunate fact that the vast majority of La Crosse County residents—both adults and children—lead a lifestyle that doesn’t promote health. We all have room to improve so that we can live healthy, productive, fulfilling lives, whether it’s being more active, watching less television, or eating better.

The La Crosse County Health Department is working with community partners to expand efforts in the county to curb obesity, promote tobacco free living, encourage physical activity and improve our community’s health environment. If we want healthier residents, we must create community environments that enable us all to make healthier choices.

Get Active is a call to action…it asks that every man, woman and child in our area take charge of the health of our community.

Get Active is a movement to change our community—a change that challenges us to work together to make the healthy choice the easy choice.

Get Active starts by giving our community knowledge… information that will help us think about what and where we eat, how we get to work and school, and how we live, work and play.

Get Active is about creating a better tomorrow for our children and their children.

Together we CAN do this. It’s time for all of us to Get Active and Cause. Community. Change.
