After a great turnout for the Start Somewhere Walks earlier this month, voting is now open for designating Blue Zone Communities throughout the state. Many walkers registered at the Start Somewhere event. To register and vote for Pella to be a Blue Zone, follow the link at kniakrls.com. Ten communities in Iowa will be chosen to receive direct support from Wellmark’s Blue Zone Project. The project is a part of Governor Terry Branstad’s Healthiest State Initiative, which aims to make Iowa the nations healthiest state in five years.
