Our mission is to create awareness, advocacy, and excitement about physical activity and the importance of designing our community for active and healthy lifestyles.
Our vision is to become a national leader in creating a model community where living through active and healthy choices is a priority.
As part of its effort to build a healthier Buffalo County, Community Partners established the Weight and Wellness Coalition in 2000. It was funded by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Nebraska and its goal was to offer nutrition and healthy eating information to Buffalo County residents in a preventative health effort. In 2008, active lifestyle goals were added to its objectives and the coalition’s name was changed to Activate Buffalo County. The coalition included members from Kearney Family YMCA, Kearney Park & Recreation, Two Rivers Public Health Department, University of Nebraska at Kearney Human Performance Lab, and more, and was led by a coalition coordinator from Community Partners.
