My Project

Your donation will help us make sure we continue to be an inclusive program, and can help all students reach their full potential.

Empower young women in our PMHS Girls Weightlifting class, by helping us update our weight room!

We are lacking some essential equipment to really help us reach all students, specifically lighter weights and resistance equipment.

Our program here at PMHS offers such a great opportunity for students to learn about strength and resistance training. By helping us update our equipment, you can help us make sure we reach all our students.
