K-State Researchers and Their Partners Making it Easier for Rural Kansans of All Ages to Stay Healthy Despite Limited Access to Facilities Like Bike Trails, Gyms
Date:5/7/2009

d. "When you talk to the youth, they still want their community to be there. These towns get a kind of energy boost from these small grants."

One town's project is creating a bird-and-bike trail where people can get exercise while enjoying the waterfowl that come through the area. Another town is bringing yoga, tai chi and Zumba fitness classes to its Walk Kansas activities.

Johannes and Ramsey said that a core part of these projects is having youths and adults working together.

"A lot of the little towns don't have a lot of young people," Ramsey said. "This is a way of making sure they get out and have fun."

The Get it-Do it program also gives communities experience in applying for grants with the hope that they can pursue more funding as their projects develop, Johannes said.

"You take a town with a personality and give it appropriate support, and you get these original -- or unique -- programs," she said. "Unlike artificial programs, they'll survive well after the grant money is gone. I hope the youth will say, 'This is what I'm attached to; this is my town.'"
