What is GO GURNEE?

GO GURNEE is a community movement, presented by Gurnee Park District, designed to promote community values of health and wellness through education, service, spirit and innovation.

Drawing on collaborations with community members, government agencies, clubs as well as businesses, schools and religious organizations, GO GURNEE seeks to create more awareness of the many programs and services that support local health and wellness initiatives.

Inspired by the U.S. Surgeon General, Dr. Vivek H. Murthy, the first stage of the movement is to encourage our community to walk at least 30 minutes each day.
