Puget Sound at Heart

Imagine a Puget Sound where healthy choices are equitable and accessible, where your freeway exit does not determine your health. Currently the average person in Auburn lives just 73 years, while someone on Mercer Island can expect to live 15 years longer. That’s not right. We’re fighting for fundamental changes in our community so that no matter where you live in the Puget Sound, you can make healthy choices.
