The TSET Healthy Living Program provided sponsorship dollars recently for the Claremore Mountain Bike Trail and Claremore Mainstreet’s Food Truck Thursdays. A $3,600 contribution toward trail signage will include Entrance, Directional and Trailhead signs at the 13-mile Claremore Mountain Bike Trail nestled along the eastern side of Claremore Lake. The trailhead and directional signs will update current markers which are symbols painted on trees. The signs will feature maps, rules, usage guidelines and the Shape Your Future and/or TSET logos. The new Entrance sign will feature a newly-designed logo/image for the trail.
A $750 sponsorship for Food Truck Thursdays will support Claremore Main Street in the operation of the six event dates (May 31, June 28, July 26, August 30, September 27, October 25) in downtown Claremore. The food truck and shopping festival features live music, food trucks, late shopping, themed activities, kids zone, and physical fitness opportunities. Approximately 1200-2500 people attend each event.

We offer site-based mentoring programs, an after-school program for 6th-8th graders, a classroom setting for students on long-term suspensions, and a program for high-risk juveniles or first offenders. Healthy Community Partnership works with the Rogers County Coalition and TSET to help improve the quality of life for Rogers County residents, by reducing prescription drug abuse, promoting smoke free environments, encouraging health and wellness through proper nutrition and increased physical activity.
