September 05, 2019 9:04am

The Wellmark Foundation has provided 17 Iowa organizations with Large Matching Assets to Community Health MATCH grants.

The grant recipients were notified in May, and had 16 weeks to secure the required match amount in order to receive their funds from The Wellmark Foundation.

One of the recipients is the City of Cherokee, as they are getting a 100-thousand dollar MATCH grant for their Magnetic Trail Park Development.

All of the funded projects will help individuals, families and communities achieve better health through built environment initiatives that encourage physical activity.
