The Healthy Teton County Coalition

 

The Healthy Teton County Coalition began in October 2013, when several concerned community members got together and brainstormed how business, organizations, and individuals living and working in Teton County could get together and advocate for healthier lifestyles.

There are already a good number of resources available in Teton County that promote healthy living, and the Coalition strives to serve as a network for those resources, making them more accessible to its residents. The coalition has advocated for healthier lifestyles by promoting local fun runs and putting on a local bike fair with Benefis. The bike fair was able to provide free helmets and bike safety education to 3rd graders in Teton County. The Healthy Teton County Coalition is open to anyone and everyone who is investing in making Teton County a happier, healthier place to live.
