About PowerUp

Our Commitment to PowerUp

PowerUp is a community-wide initiative to make it easy and fun for kids and families to eat better and move more in the St. Croix Valley area. Launched in 2013, PowerUp works with community advisors and partners across the St. Croix Valley to create positive community change. PowerUp helps kids grow up healthy through: kids cooking classes; open gyms and outdoor activities; stronger school wellness guidelines; more healthy foods at food shelves, community events and concessions.

PowerUp addresses the core contributors to overweight and obesity in children. Research shows that today’s children are experiencing weight issues at younger ages and will live shorter, less healthy lives than their parents, unless we commit to significant, wide spread change. Together, we are already engaging our communities and creating change to improve these trends and help our kids grow up healthy.

Your gift helps sustain and grow PowerUp progress for future generations.
