Sanford Health Hy-Vee

Scholarship Information

After careful re-evaluation of current programming and initiatives, Legends for Kids leadership has made the decision to discontinue our scholarship program in 2023. Moving forward, we will seek new, effective ways to impact our community’s youth more broadly. We are proud of the impacts our scholarships had on more than 60 local students over the last eight years. Our mission to provide kids with the tools and confidence to help them lead healthy lives remains as strong as ever. We look forward to continuing that work while creating even more opportunities for years to come.
