The Anthem Foundation Donates BIG to Fight For Life!

We’re excited to announce that Fight For Life Foundation has been awarded a $20,000 grant from The Anthem Foundation! The Anthem Foundation is the presenting sponsor of our Seal the Deal Youth Football Camp and in addition, has generously donated to Fight For Life to extend their impact to our Building Dreams program and beyond.

The Athem Foundation is a private, nonprofit foundation that is active in 26 states and is “the philanthropic arm of Anthem Inc. Since its establishment the foundation has granted more than $165 million in grants to organizations that support our Healthy Generations program.” In Indiana alone they have donated over 2.6 million in foundation grants to national and local partners who develop programs to create healthy and active lifestyles.

“The Anthem Foundation supports programs that raise awareness, educate and encourage new behaviors, resulting in healthy, active lifestyles.”

 

Fight For Life Foundation is committed to encouraging healthy lifestyles in children through our Seal the Deal camp that is free to children ages 3rd-8th grade. Not only that, but Seal the Deal is also designed to help students “Make big plays on and off the field” by combining the game of football with the game of life and daily character development activities. Our 2-day Youth Football Camps focus on agility, conditioning, football fundamentals, competition, character building, and fun.

“The Fight for Life foundation is so grateful for the sponsorship Provided by the Anthem foundation. The $20,000 dollar grant will allow us to continue serving underserved youth through our Seal the Deal and Building Dreams programs. With partners like Anthem we will continue empowering, guiding, and developing children who fight against insurmountable social-emotional odds on a day to day basis.” -Founder, Marlin Jackson

We’d like to send a special thank-you to The Anthem Foundation and are excited to get to work inspiring Indianapolis youth to live healthier lives.
