What are the THRIVE! Awards? 

The THRIVE! Awards are a time to celebrate the success of the organizations and individuals who have been improving our community’s health. The first annual THRIVE! Awards will be given in honor of Laurie Moran, founding convener and coordinating committee member of The Health Collaborative. Her spirited passion and longstanding commitment to building a vibrant, healthier and more resilient Dan River Region, provided inspiration, strategic guidance and an inclusive leadership framework to The Health Collaborative. While all participating organizations and community groups will be celebrated, up to six THRIVE! Awards will be presented to those who are going above and beyond to make the healthy choice the easy choice in the places where we live, learn, work, play, pray, and age. These awards include $500 in THRIVE! funds to continue impacting health in the region.
