The Great Outside

In Chilliwack, SCOPE is partnered with the Healthy Kids Initiative which is a project of the Chilliwack Division of Family Practice.  The Healthy Kids Initiative is focused on the solution-oriented, evidenced-based health message of Live 5-2-1-0.

The Healthy Kids Initiative is working in collaboration with a broad range of organizations including community services, media, corporate, non-profit and government – focusing on generating exposure while at the same time demonstrating the Live 5-2-1-0 principles in action.

Sharing & Supporting Live 5-2-1-0

Chilliwack is sharing and supporting the Live 5-2-1-0 message with a growing team of partners including the Chilliwack Child and Youth Committee,  Chilliwack Community Services and the Chilliwack School District – all of whom are dedicated to ensuring children are informed, motivated and supported in making healthy choices.
