Our support and participation in Mile High Connects and initiatives to make transit more affordable and strategically planned align closely with our community benefit mission. In addition to supporting Mile High Connects, we funded county-level efforts to develop Bike to Work events; the development, implementation, and evaluation of bike share programs; organizations working to advocate for local and state government priorities that support active transportation; a Metro Denver health impact assessment; and organizations working to increase active transportation through the built environment.
Kaiser Permanente Colorado is the state’s largest nonprofit health plan, proudly working to improve the lives and health of Colorado residents for 45 years. In 2014 we directed more than $109 million to community benefit programs that improve the health of all Coloradans. We support active people through programs, education, and infrastructure development. We help to make walking, biking, and public transit the preferred choice of transportation. Partnerships with state and local governments lead to common solutions to promote active transportation and healthy environments and economy.
