Baldwin Elementary School Primary Center, Baker receive LMH wellnes grant
Baldwin Elementary School Primary Center and Baker University have each received a $1,250 LMH Summer Spray 5K Community Wellness Grant. Funded by proceeds from the 2014 LMH Summer Spray 5K Run/Walk Series, these grants complete the three awarded by Lawrence Memorial Hospital Endowment Association in the series host communities of Eudora, Tonganoxie and Baldwin City.
During the 2015-16 school year, Baldwin Elementary School Primary Center will enhance its MyPlate nutrition education program with healthy food from each food group. The center will also use the grant to replace physical education equipment.
To reduce referrals to Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department, Baker University Student Health Center will use the grant to provide on-site testing during the upcoming academic year.
LMH Summer Spray 5K Community Wellness Grants are awarded to a program or project in each of the series host communities that effectively and resourcefully enhances local health and wellness. LMH Endowment Association will also award grants from the proceeds of the 2015 series, which was held June 20 in Eudora, July 18 in Tonganoxie and wraps up Aug. 15 in Baldwin City.
