Mr. Ybarra from Atwater CA is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Student-Athletes Need New Equipment to Help Them Improve Their Fitness

My students need 22 Douglas wristbands and 6 Speed Sleds to improve their fitness.

My Students

Our students are hardworking individuals who come to school every day with great attitudes. The students come from a low-income background and continually deal with financial hardship. We are at 90% free or reduced-price lunch on our campus, but that doesn't reflect the pride that these students have in their community.

Our students deserve nice equipment, but fundraising for this equipment can be very challenging in their communities.

I want to improve every student's overall fitness and give them the confidence that they can compete at any level.

My Project

Our idea is to obtain equipment to help improve our football players' fitness. These materials will aid in this process. We will use the requested Speed Sleds to help make them better athletes and improve their speed and agility. The students will wear the wristbands on their wrists and will have information printed on the bands so that our football athletes can improve their communication and teamwork. We have had many students accept athletic scholarships from our school. These types of scholarships have been paramount for some of our athletes that can't necessarily afford to got to a four year university. The students will learn hard work and what its like to push their bodies to limits they didn't think possible to improve their fitness.
