Foundation for Fairplay Donates to Iowa High School
The Foundation for Fairplay Fund (F3) recently donated $4,500 in athletic equipment to Iowa High School.
The money went to the purchase of 10 new Riddell® Revolution® Speed Helmets and 10 Riddell® Power® Extreme SPX™ shoulder pads. The equipment offers the latest technology in football safety.
“This donation frees up a lot of money for us to spend elsewhere on our athletes and our program,” says Sean Richard, Iowa head football coach. “All the money that we spend, we have to raise. This is a great boost to our football program and to the safety of our athletes.”
F3 was established by The Foundation at Lake Charles Memorial Hospital in order to provide a more level playing field in the areas of preventable injury needs. The fund will assist schools in acquiring equipment such as quality football helmets, training room equipment needed for the rehabilitation of sports-related injuries and creating safe physical fitness surroundings.
Funds are distributed through an application process, which is reviewed by a volunteer board of directors. To learn more about F3 or to make a donation call 337.494.3226 or visit www.lcmh.com/f3.
