Wellness ROCKS - Reaching Our Communities’ KidS is the Mayo Clinic Health System - Red Cedar's community wellness campaign aimed at motivating children and families to live a healthier, more active lifestyle.
Since its inception in 2009, the program has reached thousands of community members through a variety of activities. The program initially kicked off with the help of a grant from the Menomonie Community Health Foundation.
“We are very excited to provide this program for our community,” says Sara Carstens, director of Education. “The program focuses on preventing and reducing childhood obesity by educating and empowering youth and their families to make healthier decisions. We address nutrition and/or physical activity in all areas of the programming.”
