GRANGEVILLE — Partners Inspiring Community Health (PICH) has decided to focus in a different area.
In the past, the group concentrated on adult programs such as the annual weight loss challenge.
“When we met we got to talking and thought, ‘why don’t we start with the kids?’” said PICH member Katrena Foltz Hauger.
To that end, the group set up the “Extreme Adventure Club” that will offer activities for youth once a month. At this point those activities are set through September.
Partners include University of Idaho Extension, Groaners, The Gym, Grangeville Physical Therapy and Mountain View School District 244, of which Hauger is the liaison. In addition, sponsors include the Grangeville Community Foundation, imprints, Grangeville Country Club, Asker’s Harvest Foods, The Gallery and Mountain Smoothie.
Hauger said the mission of PICH is to “promote health and wellness within the community through various educational events, programs and presentations.”
