Anthem Foundation Supports the Club with $5,000 Grant

The Anthem Foundation has awarded $5,000 to the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Baton Rouge's Greenbrier Club site. With Anthem's support, the Club will increase the amount of time members are engaged in physical activity, increase the amount of fruits and vegetables consumed by Club members, and support Club member development of healthy habits.

Triple Play is a comprehensive health and wellness program and includes three components: Mind, Body, and Soul. The Mind component encourages young people to eat smart through the Healthy Habits program, which covers the power of choice, calories, vitamins and minerals, the food pyramid, and appropriate portion size. The Body component boosts Clubs’ traditional physical activities to a higher level by providing sports and fitness activities for all youth. The Soul component helps build positive relationships and cooperation among young people. All of our Clubs use this philosophy to drive our programs.

The Anthem Foundation promotes the organization’s commitment to enhance the health and well-being of individuals and families in the communities we serve. They believe that giving back is not only a privilege, it’s a responsibility. For more information, visit Anthem's website at http://www.anthemcorporateresponsibility.com/anthem-foundation
