Boys & Girls Club Awarded Blue Cross Grant


A new grant will provide $5,000 of funding for the Triple Play healthy lifestyles program at Alameda Boys & Girls Club thanks to Boys & Girls Clubs of America and Anthem Blue Cross Foundation. This grant is one of more than 100 distributed across the country by the Anthem Foundation to support Triple Play programming, which focuses on being healthy through the mind, body and soul. 

Anthem Blue Cross Foundation is issuing a Triple Play grant to the Club to provide programming encouraging healthy eating and physical activities for Club members. As Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s proven health and wellness program, Triple Play is a game plan for the mind, body and soul. Supported by founding sponsor The Coca-Cola Company and co-sponsor, Anthem Blue Cross Foundation, the program’s three components encourage Club members to eat healthier (mind), become more physically active (body) and increase their ability to engage in healthy relationships (soul). This Triple Play grant is part of a five-year, $10 million commitment from the Anthem Foundation to Boys & Girls Clubs of America to promote healthy lifestyles.
