Michael Maloney ’72 Fitness Center
Support the Michael Maloney ’72
Bishop Canevin High School has been given a very generous donation to create a fitness center in honor of Michael Maloney ’72.
The gift was given by Patty Gorski in memory of her brother. She fondly recalls “Michael enjoyed football, basketball and track and field.” Classmate Andy Aloe agreed. “Michael would be pleased to help today’s students in this way.”
The 1,400 square-foot fitness center will be housed in renovated space just off the school’s main entrance, near the gymnasium. “We are committed to upgrading our facilities,” said Mr. Michael Joyce, Principal. “Athletes and students in physical education classes will both benefit.”
The renovated room will be air-conditioned. Plans include rubber flooring suitable for weights and fitness, new exterior windows, LED lighting, drywall, and oak and glass entry doors. “This will benefit the entire student body,” echoed Mr. Dale Checketts, Bishop Canevin’s Athletic Director.
The renovation also includes a 340 square-foot kitchenette to prepare refreshments for home games and other events in the gym. The project provides new cabinets, countertops, sink, and tile flooring.
Funding Needed: $76,000
The lead gift covers nearly 60% of the $185,000 renovation. The fund drive needs just $76,000 to fully fund the renovation.
“Cardio and weight equipment have already been donated by the Pittsburgh Pirates, Amerifit Gym and Robinson Physical Fitness,” explained Mr. Checketts. “We just need the space to utilize it all.”
“It’s a new day at Canevin,” claims Mr. Joyce, now in his second year. “Our graduates know there is a rich history here, and for that I am thankful. This is just one of a series of projects underway that improves our offerings and helps grow enrollment.”
