For the sixth year, the Indianapolis Colts offered the PLAY 60 Fitness Grant program for local schools and non-profit organizations. Through this initiative, grants of up to $2,000 each were offered to facilitate youth fitness programs and events in the community.
The Colts have selected eight grant recipients to receive funding in support of physical and nutrition-related activities, including fitness programs, outdoor recreation activities and health education programs.
"We are honored to support these programs through the PLAY 60 Grant program," said Kalen Jackson, Owner/Vice Chair for the Indianapolis Colts. Each of these organizations is making an impact in our community and encouraging Hoosiers to live healthy and active lifestyles.
