LiveWell Wheat Ridge (LWWR), formerly named Thriving Wheat Ridge, was established in 2005 with a Thriving Communities grant from Kaiser Permanente. The mission was to advance healthy eating and active living (HEAL) through programming, policy and environmental changes that support a healthy food system and a pedestrian and bicycle friendly community. In 2008, Thriving Wheat Ridge joined the newlsy formed nonprofit LiveWell Colorado, gaining the name LiveWell Wheat Ridge.
In 2012, LWWR stepped into the advanced implementation stage of the LiveWell Colorado Community Investment initiative. This set the stage for LWWR to develop active community coalitions and influence key changes to critical policies and plans. While funding for LWWR ended in 2014, the momentum created in the last few years will support contibued implementation of HEAL policies, programs and environments for years to come.
Jefferson County Public Health served as the fiscal agent for LiveWell Wheat Ridge.
