Foundation for Fairplay donates to LaGrange High School
The Foundation for Fairplay (F3) recently donated $5,042.72 in athletic equipment to LaGrange High School.
The money went towards the purchase of two sets of catchers gear, 10 batting helmets and two coaches’ helmets for the baseball team. The softball team received a set of catcher’s gear and three batting helmets with facemasks. The donation also paid for the refurbishment of the wall padding in the high school gym.
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.
