As the sun sets on the west side of the Franklin Mountains, the number 20 illuminates from the sides of the Wells Fargo Building in Downtown El Paso. The‘20’ announces the celebration of the Paso del Norte Health Foundation’s 20th Anniversary and the organization’s two decade contribution to health promotion in the region. As part of the anniversary celebration, the Health Foundation is encouraging social media conversations tied to the hashtag #whatsyour20. The phrase “What’s your twenty?” typically is law enforcement lingo for “Where are you?” In this case, the Health Foundation is encouraging social media participants to share their recent ‘location’ of successes, accomplishments, and celebrations by tagging their posts with #whatsyour20. If you are on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or other platforms, share your celebrations with the local community, as we recognize the Paso del Norte Health Foundation for 20 years of health improvement. The ‘20’ will stay lit until the end of September, when the Health Foundation will host several events to celebrate its anniversary and start conversations about its next two decades of work.



Make a one-time or recurring gift to support health, economic development, eduation and quality of life in the Paso del Norte region.
