The Umpqua region is launching something big -- a well-being initiative called Blue Zones Project. Mark your calendar for the Blue Zones Project Community Kickoff, taking place from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 11, at Umpqua Community College's Jacoby Auditorium.
Inspired by the world's longest-lived cultures, the Project is all about making healthy choices easier right here in the Umpqua valley. Working with other organizations to encourage more places to walk and bike outdoors. More healthy foods. And more ways to connect with family, friends and neighbors.
You can learn more about the Project and discover how you can help by attending the Dec. 11 event. There will be family-friendly entertainment, cooking demonstrations, yoga and giveaways.
