Natural Grocers Proudly Renews Partnership with UCHealth in its Ready. Set. CO Challenge

Natural Grocers, a Colorado-based organic and natural grocery retailer, announces a second-year partnership with UCHealth in its Ready. Set. CO program. This state-wide challenge is aimed at getting Coloradoans back to the summit of good health.

UCHealth, a Colorado-based nonprofit health system, serves patients across the Rocky Mountain region. UCHealth recently launched the Ready. Set. CO challenge after Colorado slipped in various health metrics throughout the last several years.* More than 50 organizations and nine Colorado sports teams are offering information and resources to help participants improve their health and well-being.

“UCHealth provides expert medical care and advanced treatment options but our ultimate goal is to keep our communities healthy and out of the hospital,” said Manny Rodriguez, UCHealth’s chief marketing and experience officer. “Ready. Set. CO is meant to inspire Coloradans to take steps to improve their health. Working with organizations like Natural Grocers helps us provide the resources needed to accomplish these goals.”

UCHealth and Natural Grocers will be a part of the upcoming Outside Festival at Civic Center Park, June 1-2 to promote Ready. Set. CO and raise awareness about how participants can adopt healthy habits.

Headquartered in Lakewood, CO, Natural Grocers has been committed to serving Coloradans since 1955. With 46 stores in Colorado and 168 nationwide, the family-operated retailer believes that everyone should be able to afford health and live in a thriving, regenerative environment.

“At Natural Grocers, we are dedicated to supporting the health and wellness of our communities. Partnering with UCHealth for the Ready. Set. CO. program is a perfect alignment with our mission to provide access to high-quality, affordable nutrition and promote healthy living,” said Raquel Isely, Vice President of Natural Grocers. “We are delighted to renew our partnership commitment. We’re proud to be included in this amazing group of partners, each invested in the health and wellbeing of Coloradans.”

In 2024, Natural Grocers will continue to supply the Ready. Set. CO website with seasonally fresh, nutritious and delicious recipes to help fuel those Colorado adventures and day-to-day living, while making each meal and snack count. The Company is also working with the Ready. Set. CO team for local event support, plus fun, inspiring contests throughout the year.

Get inspired to be your healthiest self by being a part of the Ready. Set. CO challenge. Customers who visit any Natural Grocers store in Colorado in June will notice co-branded “Ready. Set. CO/Natural Grocers” signage, with a QR code, making it easy to scan and join the challenge. Sign up to receive health tips, recipes, exercise regimens, info about local events and more. You’ll also get exclusive opportunities to win prizes like autographed gear from your favorite Colorado sports teams and more from additional Ready. Set. CO partners.
