Live Your Healthy Lyfe

August 12, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm

- Free

Live Your Healthy Lyfe is a FREE annual block party in North Minneapolis designed to elevate the quality of life for residents through mental, physical and spiritual wellness offerings.

Join in for a fun-filled day full of music, food and art all designed to foster trusting relationships between residents and health and wellness experts. Attend guided community conversations, get your healthcare screening done, check a vaccination off your list, and get a mental health consult.

​It’s a block party that not only feeds people’s bodies and minds, but their souls, as well.

But Why?
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Black people are more likely to die at early ages from all health-related concerns than their white counterparts. We aim to reverse that trend in our community by bringing resources to the heart of North Minneapolis.

Centuries of systemic racism have created a trust gap between Black and brown people and health providers. Live Your Healthy Lyfe is our community reclaiming our right to be healthy and happy, on our terms.

“Lyfe” is spelled with a ‘y’ to highlight that this event is about asking questions like ‘why’ and finding answers. Information is power and with it, we can make better health-related choices. We need to be our own catalyst for sustainable change, and now is the time to collectively reimagine a healthy Northside with action and input from Black voices and allyship.

Come and build your healthy lyfe with us.
