Coca-Cola Wants America to Be Fit!
ATLANTA - (BUSINESS WIRE) - They're playing tennis in Portland, dancing in Atlanta, boot-camping in Chicago and working out in fitness centers all over America. From coast to coast, community organizations are amplifying their active living and nutrition education programs due in part to local grants from The Coca-Cola Foundation.
Through grants both large and small, the philanthropic arm of The Coca-Cola Company strives to build strong communities by supporting individuals, families and neighborhoods to live active, healthy lifestyles. These grants make a significant impact by creating opportunities for nutrition education and physical activity program expansion through local organizations.
For example, last month the Foundation awarded $300,000 to the U.S. Soccer Federation Foundation to fund its Soccer for Success program in underserved communities in Seattle, Los Angeles, Houston, Chicago, Detroit, New York and Miami. Earlier this summer, the Good Sports organization was awarded a $200,000 grant for its Good Sports 2012 program - providing equipment and offsetting participation costs for more than 40,000 youth in select cities.
