Healthy Living Alliance, Ozarks Regional YMCA Use Hip-Hop to Get Fit

So we’re now 14 hours into the workweek. Who’s ready for something unbearably cute and uplifting?

This wonderful video documents a six-week hip-hop dance program conducted by the Healthy Living Alliance in conjunction with the Ozarks Regional YMCA. The goal: having fun and getting exercise at the same time! The program was a recipient of one of the CFO’s inaugural Community Innovation grants last spring, the first such round to help fund innovative programs for the Springfield metropolitan area.

This spring the CFO will again grant a total of $50,000 to agencies with innovative proposals to address environmental, conservation, community development or other emerging community needs. Click here to learn more about the Metropolitan Springfield grantmaking program.
