PowerUp is a community-wide youth health initiative to make better eating and active living easy, fun and popular, so that youth can reach their full potential. PowerUp is a long-term commitment to create change over 10 years in partnership with schools, businesses, health care, civic groups, families, kids, and the entire community. It is supported by a designated fund of the Lakeview Health Foundation in partnership with HealthPartners. It operates across the St. Croix Valley in the region served by the area HealthPartners hospitals and clinics (Amery Hospital & Clinic, Hudson Hospital & Clinic, Lakeview Hospital, Stillwater Medical Group and Westfields Hospital & Clinic). Partner programs in the Twin Cities (YumPower) and White Bear Lake (BearPower) make a similar difference in their communities.
