Youth Athletic Fund Grant Awarded to LionStrong Program

LionStrong, a joint venture between Rush Memorial Hospital and Rushville Consolidated High School, is the 2018 recipient of the Rush County Community Foundation Youth Athletic Fund grant!  The funds awarded will be used to assist with the purchase of supplies for healthy snacks to accompany a nutrition lesson aimed toward high school athletes and other students who attend the study tables after school on Wednesdays. The goal is to provide knowledge of the needs of a growing, athletic body to be active as well as teaching basic cooking and food preparation skills.   RMH Dietician Claire Bedel is presenting the lessons, with assistance from Greg Pratt, track and field coach.


The Youth Athletic Fund was established by J.R. Billman in 1994.  Proceeds are to be awarded annually as grants to support the training of amateur athletes and coaches and/or promote educational opportunities for youth through athletic excellence.
