To date, Wellmark’s 3-Point Play at the University of Northern Iowa has infused eastern Iowa communities with more than $105,000, creating new park spaces and enhancing existing recreation areas.

Recently, the community of Alburnett earmarked its award to convert an empty field into a recreation area. The 3-Point Play funds are being used to build a temporary ice rink, extend a sidewalk to the area and purchase equipment, including a chain-link backstop for baseball and softball play, as well as portable soccer and volleyball nets.

Previously, 3-Point Play funds were used to enhance access to health and wellness resources in Cedar Falls. New playground equipment, including slides, climbing obstacles, a multi-deck lookout tower and other amenities, were installed at Washington Park with the goal of fostering healthy habits among the city’s youth.

These community health improvement projects, made possible through the 3-Point Play program, are providing Iowans access to more free health and wellness spaces and equipment. It’s just one of the many ways Wellmark is helping build vibrant, active communities. Learn more about Wellmark’s community engagement initiatives.
