The Healthy Living Coalition is a partnership with the Northwestern Health Unit and local volunteers, supported by the Township of Sioux Narrows – Nestor Falls. Our mission is to build a supportive environment for healthy living and to create, provide and communicate opportunities for our residents to engage in a safe, healthy and active lifestyle. The Healthy Coalition Members are Holly Kropelin (Northwestern Health Unit), Krista Smith (Community Member) and Cathy Linton (Community Member).
The Healthy Living Coalition organizes events and activities that include the development of informational and promotional material regarding health and wellness opportunities in our community; Health Fairs, Family Fun Days and other Health and Physical Activity Based Activities; partnerships with other organizations to promote health and wellness; and organize the annual Triple P Fun Race event, a tri-sport race for all ages held at Caliper Lake Provincial Park in Nestor Falls, complete with barbeque and prizes.
