Sacred Heart Parish In Horicon Designated As Newest Blue Zones Site

(Horicon) The ribbon will be cut today on the first faith-based community in Dodge County to become approved as part of the Dodge County Blue Zones Project. The Sacred Heart Parish earned the designation after forming a wellness committee that focused on implementing Blue Zones principles. In addition, members of Sacred Heart started a Walking Moai group that meets prior to weekday morning mass to build friendships while tracking their steps together. The Parish also hosted its first of several plant slant potlucks in January that encourage healthier eating habits, help connect church members, and provide an opportunity for families to spend quality time together. The ceremony will get underway at 10:30am at Sacred Heart Parish located at 950 Washington Street in Horicon immediately following the regular weekend service. The Blue Zones Project, sponsored by the Beaver Dam Community Hospital, is a community-led well-being improvement initiative designed to make healthy choices easier through permanent changes to environment, policy, and social networks.
