Attendance was high at the third annual Community Building Block Party. This year, we had more partners who brought more exciting activities, from whitewater demos to kids yoga to tug of war and more.

We want to thank our sponsors: First National Bank and Hy-Vee, as well as Kearney Park and Recreation and CHI Health Good Samaritan for letting us partner with the Community Olympics. Also, thanks to all our partners:

Kearney Crossfit

Kearney Family YMCA

Kearney Whitewater Association

New Life Assembly

Sweet Success & Just Breathe Yoga

Tri-City Storm

Another new addition was our “Tell Your Story Coloring Book,” which featured hand-drawn images by Youth Coordinator Mark Foradori. Based on the “anti-coloring book” concept, the images are incomplete, with space for you to fill in your own interpretations. For your own copy of the coloring book, visit bcchp.org/blockparty.

To date, we’ve raised nearly $87,000 of our $155,000 thanks to support from across Buffalo County. To learn more about our campaign, what we do, and how funds are spent, and more, visit bcchp.org/campaign. Or, if you’re interested in partnering with us to build a healthier Buffalo County, you can make a donation at bcchp.org/donate.
