Live Well Black Hills

With Live Well Black Hills, we work with community leaders to make the healthy choices to encourage people to Eat Well, Move More, Feel Better. 

The Live Well Black Hills Coalition works to improve the health of our communities in the Black Hills. Our mission is to be the healthiest community in America. Our vision is to serve as a coalition to inform and take action on programming, policies and procedures to help our community eat well, move more and feel better.

We have various workgroups you can be a part of including work site, community, childcare or media & recruitment.

Initially launched as Pioneering Healthier Communities in 2005 in Rapid City, Live Well Black Hills focuses on policy and environmental change in communities to promote healthy lifestyles. While initiated by the Y, Live Well Black Hills is not a YMCA program. Rather, the YMCA serves as convener with area organizations to help improve the health of the community.
