Purpose:
The Douglas County Community Health Improvement Partnership (CHIP) encourages all residents to be more physically active and live a healthy lifestyle. While CHIP partners with other agencies to encourage all ages to be active, it works with local schools to target younger people to encourage physical activity. The CHIP Get Moving! program was designed to encourage students in Douglas County to be physically active outside of their school day, earn incentives for doing so, be healthier and encourage those around them to be active also.
