LA PORTE, IN – Playon (, a unique web platform built to make active living easy, and Healthcare Foundation of La Porte (HFL) are delighted to announce their new collaboration in support of HFL’s Healthy Eating Active Living (HEAL) Initiative. The partnership, kicking off this November, seeks to promote active living options available throughout the county, making it easier for residents to get and stay active.

Having launched its Beta in June, Playon has been steadfast in its commitment to centralizing information related to community activities, from local park profiles to diverse programs across La Porte County. The platform, which has been dubbed a “Zillow for active lifestyles,” ensures that residents have an easy access point to discover, engage with, and even register for various activities in their area.
