LCMH Foundation Kicks Off Fairplay Fund
The Foundation at Lake Charles Memorial Hospital (LCMH) has established a new fund to assist schools with minimal donor support for health-related athletic needs – the Foundation for Fairplay Fund (F3).
The greater Lake Charles area has some of the finest athletic programs in the state, but the reality is that some are better equipped to complete due to their ability to attract greater financial support than others.
“The Foundation for Fairplay Fund is being established in order to provide a more level playing field in the areas of preventable injury needs,” says Leif Pederson, Senior Vice President of Philanthropy at LCMH. “The fund will assist schools is acquiring equipment such as quality football helmets, training room equipment needed for the rehabilitation of sports-related injuries and creating safe physical fitness surroundings.”
