Stimulus Money to Fitght Obesity in La Crosse
Millions in federal stimulus money is on the way to La Crosse county. Not to build anything, necessarily. This is more deconstructive money. It's grant money that's coming to help reduce obesity, promote healthy eating habits and increase physical activity among children. La Crosse will use some of the cash its collecting to, among other things, expand existing Safe Routes to School programs. La Crosse is one of two counties in the state to collect the federal fat-fighting cash.
