Schools to partner with local YMCA
Red Wing was one of 64 communities to receive federal grant dollars for community programming through the YMCA.
Grant funding for Pioneering Healthy Communities will go toward multiple areas -- all aimed at improving health among residents. After-school programs, physical education and nutrition will be targeted for students and community members of all ages, Supt. Stan Slessor said.
The school district will be one of up to 10 organizational partners in the project.
