The Coos County Friends of Public Health will once again hold an event that will encourage you to improve your own health, through exercise, while helping Coos County families in need. This year’s event will raise money for The Nurses’ Purse fund.

The Nurses’ Purse is a discretionary fund which can be accessed by public health nurses at Coos Health & Wellness to help families in need with essentials such as food, winter clothing, infant care, and payment of medical bills for the uninsured. The relatively small assistance from this fund can help families overcome what seem to be insurmountable obstacles to their health and wellbeing.
