Go Anoka County

The Anoka County Statewide Health Improvement Program (SHIP) is a part of Minnesota's SHIP, an integral part of Minnesota's nation-leading 2008 health reform law, which strives to help Anoka County residents lead longer, healthier lives by preventing the chronic disease risk factors of tobacco use and exposure, poor nutrition and physical inactivity. Go Anoka County was made possible through SHIP funding from the Minnesota Department of Health.

Go Anoka County is an online resource filled with information that identifies opportunities to engage in physical activity such as: 

  • Biking or walking for transportation
  • Exercising for pleasure
  • Playing in the park
  • Using public recreation opportunities and facilities
