For 17 years, Lift For Life Academy 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?
For our students, their own Gym would mean the opportunity to host other schools and have a space large enough to hold events, such as career & health fairs and school dances. Building a gym on our campus reinforces the Academy’s core belief that athletics, competition and teamwork are vital to nurturing the mind, body and spirit.
With your help, we can make the dreams of our students a reality and provide them the opportunity to play on their home court in front of family, friends and the entire school community.
Thanks to the generosity of many, we have the funds to construct the shell of a new gym and anticipate its completion in December. If we can raise the remaining $175,000 to finish the gym completely, we can install a basketball grade wood floor, basketball hoops, scoreboard and bleachers in time for our seniors to play a basketball game for their senior night in February.
