CVS Get Fit Challenge

Case's School of Medicine's Center for Science, Health, and Society (CSHS) served as a community partner with CVS/Pharmacy to launch the CVS Get Fit Challenge in Cleveland where a total of $100,000 was awarded in grants ranging from $1,000 – 5,000 to non-profit organizations and public schools to support health, nutrition, and fitness programs. The CVS Get Fit Challenge allowed the opportunity for community organizations and schools to develop programs that encourage exercise, healthy diet, and other positive health choices.
