Supporters of Wisconsin Active Together


We are a group of diverse partners working to promote healthy, thriving communities where people can easily and safely walk, ride a bike and be physically active.

​We want to recognize and support communities for their commitment to health through growing and promoting their places to walk, bike and be active. 

As sponsors of the campaign, we aim to foster local-level implementation and promote a framework moving communities from program to policy change. Along the way, we will coordinate support to include: coaching, peer networking, and in person and virtual trainings, among other resources.  

Wisconsin Active Together Partners  
We would love for communities to learn about Wisconsin Active Together, uniting people across the street and across the state, and doing everything we can to promote physical activity to foster health.
