just keep livin foundation Selected as a Target Wellness Grant Recipient
June 30, 2016
The just keep livin foundation was recently selected by Target as one of the first Target wellness grant recipients, a diverse set of small and large organizations that address a wide scope of programs to promote and inspire access to healthy eating and active living. Together, Target and partners will work to help drive sustained changes, finding new ways to help overcome barriers to wellness in our communities across the country.
Target is granting more than $40 million this year to help fund new partnerships and programs in the wellness space committed to increasing the consumption of nutrient-dense food and increasing physical activity of kids and families across the country.
With this generous grant of $180,000, we are able to establish six new just keep livin programs, which will benefit upwards of 200 additional students! We will be opening these new programs in Dallas, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C., at two new schools, respectively, in each city. We are so grateful to Target for allowing us to serve even more kids through our after-school fitness and wellness programs and we’re looking forward to a fruitful partnership!
