Each Leadership Development Academy of Rock County participant works with a small group of their fellow class members to plan and execute a collaborative project that addresses a community need. These projects and their results are presented each May and serve as the program's capstone experience.
Stretch Out The Stress
Our proposed project aims to reduce obesity rates in Rock County and improve the overall health and wellness of the community.
The project is called “Stretch Out the Stress (SOS)” and will enhance the Ice Age Trail that runs through Janesville by installing stretching/exercise stations along the Trail.
The goal of the SOS project is to raise at least $15,000 for the purchase and installation of 10 different stretching/exercise stations.
