First Ciclovia: Saturday, February 7, 2015

Ciclovia In Bogota, ColumbiaImagine a community event drawing hundreds of families to walk, run, bike and be active right in the open streets of Immokalee – Ciclovia!

The Safe & Healthy Children’s Coaltion has partnered in the effort with the Florida State University College of Medicine and the University of Florida Family Nutrition Program, both of which have a presence in Immokalee.

“We have met twice with many community agencies and everyone is very excited to bring this wonderful initiative to Immokalee,” said Safe & Health Children’s Coalition Executive Director Paula DiGrigoli. “We can all picture this being successful in Immokalee.”
If permits are granted and the planning goes smoothly, Ciclovia would be centered around the Immokalee Sports Complex and the Collier County iTech Center, creating a open and public pavilion for families to enjoy the great outdoors and engage in healthy, active movement.

The broad coalition of planning groups and agencies includes Collier County Parks and Recreation Department, Immokalee Chamber of Commerce, Collier County Sheriff’s Office, Immokalee Housing and Family Services, Department of Health in Naples, , Healthcare Network of SW Florida, Immokalee Foundation, cialis Generico, Family Literacy Academy of Immokalee, along with the CRA.
