Pikes Peak Outdoors: Prescriptions for a Healthier Colorado Springs
The Heritage Series celebrates and raises awareness of the natural assets of the Pikes Peak Region by hosting discussions, forums and other events to encourage collaboration among champions of our regional outdoor assets.
In 2019, the Heritage Series, in partnership with Colorado Springs Health Foundation seeks to highlight the relationships between health, healthcare and the outdoors. Health and the outdoors have been embedded into the fabric of the Pikes Peak Region for decades. From tuberculosis treatment in the 19th century to amateur and professional sports today, our stunning landscapes and the opportunities offered by outdoor recreation have attracted those looking to enhance their health and wellness.
This three part series will explore this past and examine ways in which Colorado Springs can encourage outdoor engagement and build connections between the healthcare and the outdoor industries for the future health and wellness of the Pikes Peak Region.
