The Ravens Foundation, a philanthropic off shoot of the NFL's franchise in Baltimore, doled out $100,000 in grants to 26 nonprofits in the Baltimore area.
Through their PLAY 60 Grant, the team provided up to $5,000 for new and expanding programs that promote physical fitness and/or nutrition education aimed at youth. That raises the total the Ravens Foundation awarded to such programs to $1.2 million.
