Tamarac donates gym equipment to White Cloud High School
FREMONT- White Cloud High School students are working out in a whole new way, thanks to more than a dozen pieces of gym equipment donated to the school by Tamarac.
On Tuesday, staff from Spectrum Health Gerber Memorial and Tamarac put the finishing touches to make the equipment fully functional. Designed to target parts of the body ranging from lats and pecs to triceps and quadriceps, the machines now sit in a room the size of half a basketball court in the second floor of the school gym. The students in school’s physical education classes will be the primary users of the newly donated equipment.
“We’re really grateful and excited to be getting this kind of equipment for our school because it will give our students a whole new way to work on their strength, conditioning and overall health and fitness,” said physical education teacher Courtney Dolan. “I know that the students so far have reacted positively. If the equipment gets them excited about exercise, then the hope is that more of our students will be motivated to work out, get fit and stay healthy.”
The donated equipment, all in good working condition, was recently replaced at Tamarac as part of the facility’s upgrade plan.
“At Tamarac and Spectrum Health Gerber Memorial, one of our priorities is to support our community and help local families achieve overall health and wellness, and we believe the gym equipment we’re donating to White Cloud High School will encourage teens to stay active and fit,” said Justin Aman, supervisor of the Wellness Center at Tamarac. “Our goal, ultimately, is to provide the kind of programming and resources to address our community’s health needs and overcome challenges so Newaygo County can be one of the healthiest communities in Michigan.”
