Our Partners Make It Possible
The Mercy Health Seaway Run is a partnership between the Muskegon Family YMCA and Muskegon Rotary Club’s 1 in 21 Healthy Muskegon County initiative; proceeds from the event help support these groups in their efforts to make Muskegon County a healthy place to live, learn, work and play.
Muskegon Rotary Club’s 1 in 21 Healthy Muskegon County launch was prompted by the low results Muskegon County received in the County Health Rankings. The County Health Rankings, produced by the University of Wisconsin and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, are based on a model of population health that emphasizes the many factors that, if improved, can help make communities healthier places to live, learn, work and play.
The vision of 1 in 21 is that Muskegon will be the Healthiest County in Michigan by 2021. It is an ambitious goal, but one that can be achieved if we all work together!
Through various committees and connections with local coalitions, 1 in 21 is working to make our community healthier by reducing the rates of obesity and smoking in our county.
