Project Details

Travis Early College High School is located near the heart of San Antonio, directly across the street from San Antonio College. Because our school is small and our students are very focused on juggling both college classes and high school courses, it's hard for our students to stay fit and healthy with the limited resources that are provided to us. The Panther Fitness Project aims to promote a healthy environment by bringing new, much-needed gym and CrossFit equipment to our school so our students can have necessary accessible fitness education and workout opportunities before, during, and after classes. The goals of our Travis Early College HS Panther Fitness Project fundraiser are: * Provide accessible sports and workout equipment for the general student body and school faculty such as: - Sports: new volleyballs, basketballs, soccer balls, tether balls, scooter boards and more. - Workout: weights, yoga mats, battle ropes, stationary bikes, resistance bands, gator balls and more. Resources will be available to use during P.E., free periods, and before/after school. Education, coaching, and monitoring by P.E. Coach Mr. Montoya in our school gym and courtyard on campus. * Provide accessible CrossFit and general exercise equipment for students who wish to join the after-school Panther Fitness Club, which incorporates CrossFit-inspired engagement and workouts: - CrossFit: yoga mats, barbells, kettle-bells, medicine balls, squat stands, and more. Resources will be available to use only during the Panther Fitness Club and as instructed by the CrossFit teacher. Education, coaching, and monitoring by math teacher Mr. Cottrell who is CrossFit certified for children/teens and adults. We hope to reach and even exceed our $350 goal! Thank you to everyone for your support!

Partial Funding Plan

Whether we reach our goal or not, as the Panther Fitness Club, we are initiating healthy fundraisers on our school campus throughout the year. Also, our Plan B is to use the limited amount of funds provided to Travis Early College HS by a grant.
