Colorado Springs Health Foundation approves $1.37 MM in grants to improve health in the Pikes Peak region

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO The Colorado Springs Health Foundation Board of Trustees recently approved $1.37 million in grants to nine organizations serving El Paso and/or Teller Counties.

Eight of these nine organizations were awarded funds to improve the built environment , which is defined as person-made spaces and places where we live, work, and play. Research shows that the built environment influences our opportunities and choices to pursue greater (or lesser) physical activity.

Improving the built environment in areas of high need is one way the Foundation aims to encourage healthy living for all residents in the Pikes Peak region. Year-to-date in 2017, Colorado Springs Health Foundation has awarded $2.94 million in grants.
