WHEATON – The Wheaton Park District was awarded two health grants in April, according to a news release from the district.

Wheaton was one of the association's 35 member agencies to receive grants totaling $35,000.

The camp promotes children's health with exercise and fitness assessments. For more information, call the Parks Plus Fitness Center at 630-871-6713.
