GO Lake Forest is a new movement in partnership with several Lake Forest community organizations and the Lake County Health Department to promote its new health initiative, GO Lake County. The goal of GO Lake County and GO Lake Forest is to improve the health of Lake County residents by promoting the simple act of walking as means to improve health. Join us and your neighbors in walking your way to better health!
