Humana Announces $100K grant to help build trail along the Licking | Business
CINCINNATI (FOX19) - A Tri-State nonprofit, Forward Quest, Inc., has been chosen to receive $100,000 from Humana. The winner was announced Tuesday evening at the Cintas Center on the Xavier University campus.
Two runners up will also receive smaller grants. The three award finalists were selected from more than 50 applications:
• Forward Quest, Inc. made the winning proposal for an urban greenway and multi-use trail system from the mouth of the Licking River in Northern Kentucky to I-275. The trail will address the significant need for increased health and recreation areas for Tri-State residents.
• Dan Beard Council, Boy Scouts of America was seeking the award to help build a health wing at its camping properties in Loveland, Ohio. With funding from Humana, the Dan Beard Council wanted to construct a new building with an exam room for medical emergencies and an education space to teach health-related badges for the scouts.
• The University of Cincinnati Foundation wishes to create a walking path for Clermont College. The path will offer safe passage for students and the community through restored wetland and woodland areas.
