Hurricane Pride is a group of parents, student athletes, coaches, alumni, and community members that have come together to support the educational and athletic programs for Hoosac Valley Middle and High School. Our belief is that our future is with our children and we are focusing our efforts on the development of a strong body and mind for our youth. A well rounded child is a happy and successful future leader of our community.
Hurricane Pride has identified two projects they will be raising money: 1) equipment for our strength and conditioning room at the newly renovated middle and high school and 2) the building of a multi-use concession building. Both of these projects are not within the scope of the renovation project and have become the focus of this group. Our goal is $70,000 of which $29,500 will be earmarked for weight/training equipment and approximately $40,500 towards the building of the concession building.
The strength and conditioning room will be equipped with multi-use squat and bench racks with rubber platforms, rubber weights, glute ham developers, medicine balls, ropes, dumbbells, and soft impact Plyo boxes. This equipment will be available to all students so that they can condition within their own school. The concession will be available for use by baseball, cross-country, football, soccer, softball, and track and will have storage space and bathroom facilities. Donated building services are being sought for the construction of the building, but monies will be needed for supplies, plumbing, and electric. Donations to this effort may be considered tax deductible.
Our efforts will kickoff on July 9, 2012.Donations to these projects may be made through an online Pay Pal account or by mailing a check or money order to the high school c/o Hurricane Pride. Additional information is located at: www.acrsd.net, Facebook.com/HVPride, and www.hurricanepride.com.
Hurricane Pride will also be providing the opportunity to purchase inscriptions on the brick pavers that are part of the renovated arts entrance at HVMHS. The monies will also be earmarked for the strength and conditioning room equipment and multi-sport concession building. Order forms will be located at Hurricane Pride on Facebook and the District’s website.
A sample of the brick pavers will be available at HiJinx on July 30 at the Hurricane Booth. In addition to the availability of purchasing inscriptions on the brick pavers, the group will be planning a fundraising dinner event with more information to follow.
Monetary updates to our fundraising efforts will be posted on Hurricane Pride, Facebook and the school’s website so you can watch us grow.
Alumni, family and friends, please help support our efforts!
