LOMBARD – Healthy Lombard recently won a $1,000 grant from Health Mart Pharmacy, but ultimately fell short of the final round, where the winner will receive a $30,000 grant.
The local nonprofit organization was named one of 15 finalists in Health Mart's Champions of Care Challenge. Round 2 involved an online voting competition to cut the field to 10. Healthy Lombard did not make the final cut, founder Jay Wojcik confirmed Monday.
Healthy Lombard is a village-wide initiative formed in 2009 to address childhood obesity. It recently held its 2014 Fitness February Fair.
