Do you know someone who strives to make their community a healthier place?

The La Crosse Healthy Living Collaboration is asking for you to nominate a community member who goes above and beyond to make the Coulee Region a healthier place to live.

Nominees for the Healthy Living Heroes award will be sorted into three separate categories, including children, individual and an organization.

"We don't want people to feel limited by the examples that we've given. It really is a broad way of recognizing the great work that occurs and the successes that occur and keep that momentum going," said La Crosse County Health Department health educator Paula Silha.

The last day to nominate someone is Nov. 15.
