DES MOINES, Iowa - Earlier this summer, The Wellmark Foundation announced it was accepting Community Kickstarter grant applications to fund up to $10,000 for projects in Iowa and South Dakota focused on making community members more active or improving access to healthy foods.

"The large number of applications is a testament to communities wanting to improve the health and well-being of their citizens," said Stephanie Perry, The Wellmark Foundation manager. "We received requests for all types of projects from park and playground renovations to farmers' market and community garden projects."

All 119 applications have been uploaded to Sept. 26 until Oct. 7, The Wellmark Foundation encourages the public to go online to show their support by telling us which one is their favorite.

Grant recipients will be announced in November.
