Green RX is part of the Bi-cultural Active Living Lifestyle that has been that been piloted by the Green RX team. This program has been started to encourage the community to utilize the parks and exercise more. Interested community members we able to register for culturally specific physical activities at the kick-off. The pilot program offers Yoga, Tai Chi, Asian Dance, Hip Hop, and African Drum as examples of cultural physical activities.

With collaborations of the following agencies: MPRB, Asian Media Access, Pathway Learning Center, St. Mary’s Children’s Hospital, Fairview and Park Directors, the Green RX team was able to secure the Leadership Park fund for this pilot program. It took about 6 months to be able to secure the grant and start planning for the kick-off and implementation of Green RX in the parks. AS Green RX starts taking root in the parks, this will assist BALL in encouraging the Northsiders to stay healthy.
