Holly Springs, NC – Daniel Currin, CEO and President of Greenscape Inc., has been named President of the non-profit, Come Alive Outside. The organization was started by Jim Paluch in 2010 to promote the benefits of an active, outdoor lifestyle.
“When I first heard about Come Alive Outside and its mission, it made me reevaluate our business and how we could contribute to the movement,” says Currin. “Researchers are identifying so many health benefits from spending time outdoors, and Americans are just starting to hear the message. I’m pleased to support Come Alive Outside as we work to get the message out to the community.”
The Come Alive Outside mission is to facilitate collaborative community systems that create the awareness, intention and opportunity for people to live healthier lives outside. They encourage people to become active outdoors, eat what they grow, learn with their hands in the dirt, relax outdoors and play unplugged. The organization currently produces programs like the Come Alive Outside Design Challenge, which creates the opportunity for college, high school, elementary and pre-school students to work together with professionals to design and build engaging outdoor learning environments at schools and childcare facilities.
