OUR OWN GYM
For 17 years, students have had to travel to other locations to participate in P.E. classes, athletic team practices and work out in a converted office building.
Can you believe they’ve never had a home game?
With your help, we can make their dreams of playing a home game, having a school dance and accepting their high school graduation diploma in their OWN GYM come true!
We need $175,000 to complete our gym–$10,000 for the scoreboard, $30,000 for the hoops, $45,000 for the bleachers and $90,000 for the basketball-grade wood floor. As our campaign progresses, watch our gym “being built” and our students’ dreams come true.
WHAT IT MEANS TO OUR STUDENTS
SEE THE SELF-ESTEEM DIAL GO UP
“I am a senior at Lift For Life Academy and have been attending this school since the 7th grade. I’m the captain of the varsity basketball team. Basketball is there for me when nothing else is. It helps me in times of adversity, day to day struggles and everything that stresses me out in the world today.” -C. D.
