LMH offering grants for community wellness initiatives
Lawrence Memorial Hospital is accepting grant applications for community wellness projects in Eudora, Baldwin City and Tonganoxie. The grants, offered through LMH Endowment Association, are made possible by proceeds from LMH’s ninth annual Summer Spray 5K run/walk series.
Multiple grants may be awarded in each community, with a maximum of $2,500 per applicant. The community wellness grants will be awarded to programs or projects that enhance local health and wellness in the host city. More than $10,000 will be distributed, beginning in September. In addition to community grants, proceeds from the annual run/walk series will benefit Lawrence Memorial Hospital’s clinics in the three towns.
This summer, more than 500 people participated in races in Eudora, Baldwin City and Tonganoxie.
“LMH is proud to partner with Eudora, Baldwin City and Tonganoxie to offer the Summer Spray series,” said Rebecca Smith, executive director of LMH Endowment Association. "LMH is committed to being your partner in lifelong health, and thanks to the generosity of our volunteers, participants and sponsor Briggs Auto of Lawrence, we are excited to provide grant support to those working to improve community health and well-being.”
Grant applications are due August 31, 2017; to apply, please contact Tiffany Hall, LMH Endowment’s annual giving and events manager, at email@example.com, or download an application at www.lmhendowment.org/summerspray.
