MIHS Fitness Center Renovation Project
Thank you for supporting our kids!
"If you build it, they will come." Kevin Costner from Field of DreamsThank you for your interest in the exciting MIHS Fitness Center Renovation Project! Currently, the only on-campus, training space available to the student body is an outdated weight and wrestling room which are in dire need of renovation. The rooms lack cardio machines, functional training equipment and space, and are drab and unmotivating.Our community has the opportunity to create a WELCOMING, ALL-INCLUSIVE, state-of-the-art Fitness Center (click to see video) that will support ALL students – from those who are "just" earning PE credits to State-caliber athletes...and everybody in between.Mercer Island students, athletes, coaches, booster clubs, alumni and the residents are partnering to fundraise this project. When complete, ALL MIHS students will have a safe, effective space to work on their strength, conditioning and fitness goals and enable the school to increase its P.E. offerings, encouraging lifelong fitness. The MIHS Fitness Center is an investment in the future of our island and the health of our community.This summer, the new flooring (which was already planned and funded with the MISD Capital Levy), has been replaced with durable rubberized fitness flooring. Now our community needs to collect the additional $150K to pay for the new equipment and enhanced space. To date, $130K has already been committed by some amazing local doners and booster clubs.PLEASE join this effort and DONATE TODAY! No donation is too small! 100% of all tax-deductible donations go directly towards locally-design MIHS Fitness Center! And don't forget to ask your company to match!"If you build it, they will come!"
The current space is unusable for many athletes and is uninspiring and unmotivating for all.
The new MIHS Fitness Center will inspire students, coaches, and athletes to reach their full potential.
The competition is leaving us behind
Schools around us (including Bellevue, Newport, Interlake, Eastside Catholic, Skyline, and more) boast modern, well-equipped fitness centers that give all their students a competitive advantage.
We are well on our way.
Everyone is pitching in. Please join us. This won't happen without each of you.
