The Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas Foundation has been promoting the good health of Kansas residents since 2005 and has provided more than $5.5 million in financial support for initiatives that focus on key health issues.
To that end, the foundation is inviting applications for its Healthy Habits for Life grants program. Through the program, grants of up to $1,000 will be awarded to assist schools in promoting healthy lifestyle choices to their K-12 students. Grants will be awarded in support of programs that help Kansas youth reduce their cardiovascular risk, increase their physical activity, and/or learn healthy eating habits.
A total of $150,000 is being offered through the program to nonprofits in the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas Foundation service area, which includes all counties in Kansas except Johnson and Wyandotte.
See the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas Foundation website for complete program guidelines, application instructions, and a list of previous grant recipients.
