Take action towards better health with the Chippewa Valley Summer Activity Passport! Summer is a great time to try new activities and set health goals to prevent chronic diseases like heart disease and diabetes, and this activity passport shows you where to find exciting opportunities in Chippewa, Dunn, and Eau Claire counties. Whether your goal is to exercise more frequently or eat more servings of fruits and vegetables, you may find that it’s easier to meet goals when you’re doing something you enjoy. 

The best part? You can win some awesome outdoor and fitness prizes for participating! Here’s how it works: 

1. Visit as many parks, trails, and local activities as you want! 
2. Snap a photo of yourself at each location.
3. Upload the photo(s) in the portal at the bottom of this page! Each photo counts as an entry to win a prize, so the more you participate, the better your chances of winning!
