NCPTA Applauds 16 PTAs for Receiving Grants from BCBSNC Foundation

PTAs in 10 counties have received grant awards from Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina (BCBSNC) Foundation to help school communities access opportunities for physical activity. The BCBSNC Foundation worked in partnership with NCPTA to provide Healthy Active Communities Physical Activity Equipment Grants with a focus on North Carolina public schools (K-12).
