The Colorado Health Foundation graciously provided the Cheyenne County School District with a planning grant in the amount of $35,000. The Colorado Health Foundation is bringing health in reach for all Coloradans by engaging closely with communities across the state through investing, policy advocacy, learning and capacity building. The Cheyenne County School District will be spending the next several months working with the community in order to engage all citizens in the project design for an outdoor built environment including a playground for all community members to enjoy. Step It Up! is looking for community members of all ages to be a part of a planning committee for a new playground. Step it Up! will provide childcare, food, compensation, translation services, and other support for community members ages 10+ who are interested in joining.
Step it Up! Your Health Matters is the name of this community-lead project. This project will create a meaningful impact for all citizens of Cheyenne County as the main goal of the Step it Up! Your Health Matters project is to improve the health of Cheyenne County citizens.
