The Healthiest County Challenge
The Blair County Planning Commission participated in the Healthy Community Challenge! This challenge was a national competition against 50 other counties and mid-sized cities across America, to create and promote healthy lifestyles. Whichever county or city showed the most improvement in healthy living won one of five $50,000 grants or the grand prize of $500,000! Blair Planning was awarded $10,000 seed funding from the AETNA Foundation as part of the Healthiest Cities and Counties Challenge. We congratulate the Healthiest Cities & Counties Challenge winners Mecklenburg County, NC and Bridgeport, CT.
