Two Regional Schools Celebrate the Launch of Project Fit America

Heartland Foundation and students and staff from Minnie Cline Elementary School in Savannah, Missouri, and Northland Christian School in Kansas City, Missouri, recently celebrated the acquisition of indoor and outdoor exercise equipment made possible through Project Fit America.
