Affair of the Heart 2018
On February 8, Trillium was the presenting sponsor of the Affair of the Heart luncheon, that included a keynote address by UO alumnus and Olympic bronze medal winner, Brianne Thiessen Eaton. Brianne’s healthy lifestyle message was inspiring and aligns perfectly with Trillium’s obesity prevention efforts. Later that afternoon, Trillium provided free chair massages and health information at the Affair of the Heart Health and Wellness Expo.
No One Eats Alone Day 2018
A positive prevention initiative designed to promote inclusion in middle schools was celebrated at Cascade and Meadow View Middle Schools in Eugene, on Feb. 9, 2018. More than 200 6th graders participated in activities designed to teach about social isolation and the impact it can have on a student’s health and academic performance.
During lunch, students were assigned seats to connect them with classmates outside their normal circle of friends. They were given ice breaker topics for discussion that helped find their commonalities and form bonds.
At Cascade Middle School Trillium hosted an assembly following the lunchtime activities and invited students to reflect on what they learned. Afterward, the students signed pledges on a large banner that now hangs in the school as a positive reminder of their commitment to be inclusive.
Social isolation has been identified as a precursor to bullying, self-harm and community violence. Students have shown that given the tools, they will stand up for others as empathetic and caring activists, not passive bystanders.
Cascade and Meadow View Middle Schools were two of more than 2,000 schools across the country that celebrated No One Eats Alone Day, reaching more than 1 million students. Centene Charitable Foundation was a national sponsor.
