BASE recently received a $1,500 donation from Fort Healthy Wellness Coalition to purchase new recreation equipment for their summer and school year programs.
The vision of Fort Healthy is to help Jefferson County become the healthiest county in Wisconsin. Fort Healthy’s goals are to reduce obesity, educate our community about the nutritional content of food, how to select healthy foods, promote water consumption and increase the physical activity of our citizens.
According to Executive Director, Alicia Norris, BASE will use the recreation equipment on a daily basis during outside and gym time and for wellness programs. “BASE is thrilled to have new recreation equipment for our members. These items will be well loved and encourage a variety of activities for our kids to explore,” noted Norris. “ We are appreciative of the support so we can have a greater impact on our kids and their health.”
