“Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much”. ~ Helen Keller
What started off in 2011 as a way to educate and train skilled workers to help local manufacturers fill open positions, the Live Algoma initiative has now grown into an award-winning model for developing other community assets crucial to health and well-being.
Thanks to the dedication of the Live Algoma Activation teams, the commitment of time, money and resources from our area businesses and the belief in our community that small places can do big things, Algoma was awarded the 2017 RWJF Culture of Health Prize. This is a huge accomplishment as only eight communities out of a couple hundred were selected this year.
Several Live Algoma team members traveled to Princeton, New Jersey for the presentation of the award on October 11, 2017. In order to include the entire community in the recognition, a Celebration of Algoma is being held on Saturday, October 28, 2017, from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Algoma High School and Community Wellness Center.
The opening ceremony kicks off at 11:00 a.m.! Come and enjoy free lunch, family activities, music, and FUN!
