Glenbard D-87 receives healthy living grant

Published: Monday, July 22, 2013 1:25 p.m. CST

The Midwest Dairy Council awarded Glenbard District 87 a $15,600 grant to support its Fuel Up to Play 60 initiative, which encourages students to eat healthy and participate in physical activity for at least 60 minutes every day.

All four high schools in the district were chosen from hundreds across the country that were seeking funding for nutrition and physical activity improvements. Each chosen school received as much as $4,000 from the grant program.

Funds for Fuel Up to Play 60 will support various district efforts, including a student fitness fair, Live Life Well Week's Healthy Cooking Challenge and the purchase of heart rate monitors for physical education classes.
