The Alliance for Health Equity was presented with a $25,000 grant from the American Water Charitable Foundation for the Greening Coatesville Initiative and Outdoor Fitness Center, as part of the Foundation’s 2022 Keep Communities Flowing Grant Program.
“Pennsylvania American Water has been a long-standing community partner in the City of Coatesville, and thanks to the Alliance for Health Equity, the city will benefit from the American Water Charitable Foundation’s Keep Communities Flowing Grant,” said James Logan, Coatesville City Manager. “The award will help fund the construction of an outdoor fitness center and continue the Parks and Recreation Commission’s efforts to improve our city parks by encouraging new park experiences through healthy and educational activities. We are proud to partner with Pennsylvania American Water and the Alliance for Health Equity.”
The city’s Parks and Recreation Commission coordinates fitness programs and health activities to attract and enhance the city’s diversity equity and inclusion initiatives. The outdoor fitness center will inspire group exercises, health gatherings and events featuring screenings, mental health resources, and building relationships.
