LiveWell Lawrence will mark its seventh anniversary with a celebration breakfast later this month. The celebration will be from 7:30 a.m. to 8:45 a.m. Friday, Nov. 20, at the Eldridge Hotel Ballroom, 701 Massachusetts St. The event is free and open to the public and sponsored by the Douglas County Community Foundation.

LiveWell Lawrence is a coalition of more than 160 community members who are working together to make it easier for Douglas County residents to eat healthy foods, be physically active and live tobacco free. The coalition is coordinated by the Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department.

“This is an opportunity to get coalition members and friends of LiveWell Lawrence together to celebrate our community’s progress and thank some of the people who have made it possible,” LiveWell Lawrence Chair Eileen Horn said.

A short program will start at 8 a.m. and include announcement of the Douglas County Community Foundation’s LiveWell Community Wellness Grants. These individuals and organizations will be honored with LiveWell Lawrence Culture of Health Action Awards: Nancy O'Connor, Mike Myers, Ola Faucher, Lawrence Hy-Vee Stores, K-State Research & Extension - Douglas County and the City of Lawrence.
