Thank you for being a friend of Canyon Ranch Institute!

Most kids in the United States don't eat enough fruits and vegetables, and unfortunately they're also eating too much sugar, salt, and fat. Children in low-income communities have even less access to healthy food. To help improve the health of our nation's most vulnerable kids, Canyon Ranch Institute is partnering with Canyon Ranch to strengthen innovative collaborations improving the nutrition of children in communities nationwide.
Through a competitive application process, we selected four teams for the 2016 Canyon Ranch Institute Healthy World Scholarship. The teams - made up of 15 dedicated experts from such diverse fields as health care, food service, education, and non-profits - live and work in four communities. Read about the teams and the excitement the scholarship is generating in Chinle, AZ; Greenville, SC; Savannah, GA; and Wilkes County, NC.

We're looking forward to meeting the teams and helping enhance the work they're doing to help kids grow up healthier and happier. Connect with us on Facebook and Twitter for the latest updates about the teams!

In Good Health,
Jennifer Cabe
Executive Director and Board Member

P.S. In 2017, the CRI Healthy World Scholarship will focus on improving children's fitness. Watch our website and future CRI updates for the call for applications.
