About GO Lake County:
Inspired by a presentation and challenge from former Surgeon General, Vivek K. Murthy, to encourage more movement among US Residents, the GO initiative was founded by the Gurnee Park District. Gurnee Park District has now partnered with the Live Well Lake County Movement to expand GO initiatives into Lake County communities.
Partner with us!
The City of Lake Forest would like the GO Lake Forest brand to be associated with all activities in Lake Forest that promotes being healthy and active. If you have an activity that you would like to be part of GO Lake Forest please contact Jason Busdeker at the Recreation Department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
