Baptist Health Foundation Awards $75,000 Grant for Fit Family Challenge
The Baptist Health Foundation awarded a $75,000 grant to San Antonio Sports that will be used to provide healthful snacks and water for all participants, facility fees for use of the weekday event sites, a marketing campaign to promote the Fit Family Challenge program, health screenings and educational materials. In addition, in 2016 the Fit Family Challenge program will implement a faith-based initiative to increase community involvement in the program. The spiritual and social connection between members of a church community presents an excellent opportunity to provide the benefits of the Fit Family Challenge program. The goal of Fit Family Challenge is to improve the health and wellness of San Antonio families in high risk populations through routine family-friendly physical fitness activities, nutrition education and health screening and measurements.
