Blue Cross and Blue Shield Foundation Donates $10,000

The Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield Foundation granted $10,000 to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central New Hampshire for a comprehensive health and wellness initiative that strives to improve the overall health of members by increasing physical activity, teaching good nutrition and helping develop healthy relationships.

This grant is one of over 100 distributed across the country by the Anthem Foundation to help youth build the skills needed to overcome environmental factors that can negatively impact health and wellness.

Triple Play approaches wellness with a comprehensive, multi-dimensional curriculum designed to help youth create opportunities to take charge of their personal health and wellness. Club members receive evidence-informed health education and programming, delivered in a fun and engaging environment that enable youth to develop the most critical social and emotional skills that are core to success in all areas of their development.

Through the grant, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central New Hampshire will reach hundreds of children at twelve program sites in Andover, Concord, Franklin, Hopkinton, Laconia, Suncook, Sutton, Warner and Weare.
