Are you Ready to say, “ I DID IT”? The summer-long I DID IT! in Faribault program is designed to get people active by participating in planned events or enjoying activities already in place in Faribault at a free or reduced cost. I DID IT! in Faribault is sponsored by District One Hospital and is also supported by the Statewide Health Improvement Program (SHIP). Stephen Pribyl, CEO of District One, said it was the hospital’s “already expanding role in health promotion and community wellness initiatives” that made the “I DID IT!” program a natural fit. The ‘I DID IT’ program is unique in that it allows participants to try a variety of activities and find something that truly appeals to them.
Member businesses can particate by purchasing I DID IT Cards for their employees and helping them find their way to get active and healthy!
