Baltimore Ravens Plan in Motion

The Baltimore Ravens All Community Team Foundation (RACTF) has awarded City Springs School and Collington Square School grants of $5,000 each to promote physical fitness. The grants will support the after-school Karate program at City Springs and volleyball, basketball, and soccer at Collington Square.

This year the Ravens’ Plan in Motion project has provided nearly $100,000 in grants to 23 nonprofit organizations in the Baltimore metropolitan area. RACTF is dedicated to improving and facilitating the healthy development of youth in Baltimore and throughout the state of Maryland.

Childhood obesity is on the rise and inactivity among the nation’s youth is a great concern. This grant program, in its second year, has been designed to encourage healthy youth activities and promote the importance of nutrition and exercise for children.
