VOTE for Chrysalis!

Chrysalis is in the running for $7,500 grant from Wellmark in honor of their 75th anniversary.

We need YOUR help!

The funds from this grant expand and enhance the fitness curriculum (known as Girlstrong!) in our Chrysalis After-School program by providing fitness kits for each program site. Fitness kits will include equipment that is non-intimidating and easy to use in order to create a positive experience for girls that are not familiar or comfortable with regular exercise. Suggested equipment includes hula hoops, jump ropes, and gym class scooters. With the new equipment, we hope to make fitness fun!

Please share our project with friends and family!  Public voting is one of four final factors Wellmark will use to determine the ten winners of $7,500.  Only one vote per ISP address per day will be allowed.

Thank you for your support!
