Day Nursery Association has been selected as one of nineteen youth-serving organizations throughout Indiana as a CHAMPS (Champions in Life) Grant recipient, awarded annually by Indiana Sports Corporation.
CHAMPS Grants support organizations that provide underserved youth with the opportunity to participate in sports and fitness activities that teach life skills. The CHAMPS Grants are funded by the net proceeds of the annual Youthlinks IndianaCharity Golf Tournament, as well as direct contributions from many generous organizations like Community Health Network Foundation, The Samerian Foundation and Conseco. 

Day Nursery will be using our award for our Summer Water Safety Program. This program takes place for six weeks during June and July at the IUPUI Natatorium and is open to all 4-6 year old preschoolers at the 7 Day Nursery centers.

A total of 208 youth-serving organizations have received more than $1.7 million in CHAMPS Grants since 1988. This year’s CHAMPS Grants are divided among 19 organizations that serve nearly 10,000 youth.
