This fundraiser event will assist the Healthy Community Partnership (HCP) in its mission is to achieve lasting positive environmental change in Rogers County to prevent substance abuse and promote overall wellness for youth and across the lifespan. HCP was formed in March 2008 to combat substance abuse problems at the community level with a particular emphasis on prescription drug misuse. Through the efforts of HCP members, Rogers Co. now has nine permanent drop boxes where citizens may safely dispose of unused/unwanted prescription medications mobile take-back events are now commonplace. Over the years, the coalition member agencies and volunteers have expanded efforts to include underage drinking, tobacco/vape control, improved access to healthy foods, the wellness of younger children, monthly digital newsletters, and healthy living projects such as RoCo Fit, Wednesday Walking PALs and the Will Rogers Park renovation.
The Healthy Community Partnership is planning seasonal art crawls in April, June, Sept, and November each year. They are hoping this will help showcase all the great artists in our community, and also assist them in funding more health promotion programs to make Rogers County a healthier place to live, work, play and visit.
