The Governor’s Council for Active and Healthy Lifestyles will partner with Health Links Colorado and the Colorado Education Initiative on two new awards in 2015: The Governor’s Award for School Health and Wellness and the Governor’s Award for Worksite Wellness.

Founded in 1975, the bipartisan Council is made up of governor-appointed members and numerous affiliated volunteers, who promote active and healthy lifestyles statewide. The Council is dedicated to making Colorado the healthiest state in the nation.

The Governor’s Award for Worksite Wellness will be presented at the Colorado
