A program that surprises a child with cancer by bringing a horse to the family home for a day of fun activities is among nine ‘healthy” Oakland County projects that received a total of more than $10,000 in funding through the Brooksie Way Minigrant program.
The awards were handed out May 24, 2012 by Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson during the 2012 kickoff breakfast for The Brooksie Way Presented by HealthPlus at the Royal Park Hotel in Rochester. News Talk Radio 760 WJR and the Paul W. Smith Show broadcast live from the event.
The Brooksie Way Minigrant program is a grant to fund projects that support the promotion of healthy and active lifestyles. Local communities and non-profit agencies operating in Oakland County can apply for funding. The maximum award is $2,000.
