The Kentucky Coalition for Healthy Communities (KCHC)

A coalition to promote and develop social networks and resources needed to promote geriatric workforce development in rural communities and to increase the community supports that help older adults in rural communities lead healthier lives. The Kentucky Coalition for Healthy Communities (KCHC) is an “umbrella” coalition comprised of community-based coalitions, social service agencies, collaborative grant teams, university partners, healthcare businesses, community organizers, frontline workers, ministers, peer mentors and older adults/caregivers/families and community members who support improving the health of the residents of Kentucky.

As part of the KCHC, an annual county challenge walk is held in the month of September. Counties complete against each other to see which county has the most steps of the day. A traveling trophy is awarded to the county with the most steps.
