Foundation for Fairplay donates to Singer High School
The Foundation for Fairplay (F3) recently donated $902.81
in athletic equipment to Singer
The money went towards the purchase of two sets of catcher’s
gear and 10 batting helmets for the baseball team. The softball team also received
nine batting helmets.
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 assists 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
