Today is Blue Zones Day, Friday March 12th! Celebrate in Many Ways!

Community-Wide Celebration

Blue Zones Day is our opportunity to celebrate Klamath Falls’ success as a RWJF Culture of Health Prize winner and as a newly named certified Blue Zones Community®. We’ll be celebrating our community in a socially-distanced, COVID-friendly format with volunteer projects, walking groups and a ribbon cutting on Friday, the 12th at Sugarman’s Corner with Mayor Westfall, Public Health Director Jennifer Little, and County Commissioner Kelly Minty Morris.

Wear your Blue Zones Project t-shirt to show your community pride and join in-person or virtually on Facebook. Register for event updates at www.healthyklamath.org/BlueZonesDay.
