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

As program manager, 1000 Friends of Wisconsin aims to foster local-level implementation and promote a framework moving communities from program to policy change. At the same time, we will coordinate support to include: advocacy, education, peer networking, and community engagement resources.  

Wisconsin Active Together Partners  
We want communities to learn about Wisconsin Active Together and its community participants! As WAT communities finish local projects or work together to advocate for policy change at the state level, we'll be sharing it with you. You can use #WIActiveTogether when sharing on social media about your community!
