HealthPoint To Donate Equipment to Georgetown Co. High Schools

Monday, September 27, 2010

Pawleys Island, SC HealthPoint-Center for Health and Fitness will donate several pieces of equipment to all four Georgetown County high schools on Wednesday, September 29.

Carvers Bay High School, Waccamaw High School, Georgetown High School, and Andrews High School will each receive machines that provide upper and lower-body exercises to maintain physical fitness.

“Our hospital system believes strongly that good health and exercise should start at a young age and continue throughout one’s life,” HealthPoint Director Kevin Conlon said. “We hope that donating this equipment to high school students will instill a personal commitment to a healthy lifestyle. The Georgetown Hospital System and HealthPoint are pleased to offer Georgetown County schools this top- of-the-line resistance training equipment.”

"We are very appreciative of our partnership with the Georgetown Hospital System,” said Dr. Randy Dozier, Georgetown County School District Superintendent. “They help us in a number of ways, including athletic trainers. The generous donation of exercise equipment HealthPoint is making to the school district is greatly appreciated. Our high school students will be able to utilize the equipment that they otherwise would not have.”
