Cal Ripken Team8 Tour Coming to PHHS

We are excited to announce our partnership with the Cal Ripken Foundation Team8 Tour!

Every year, Team8 Tour members hit the road to reduce need, restore health, and renew hope in city schools. Together, we will work to beautify some of the prime locations within PHHS.

To celebrate this beautification project, we will host a kick-off Wednesday, October 24th at PHHS! We would like to invite any of our family members to come and learn more information about the updates to our building that will continue to promote safe and welcoming facilities that will help our scholars stay active and put them on the path toward healthy and successful futures.

During tour stops, Team8 Tour volunteers teach staff and students how to make the most of any new resources to benefit their health and fitness—life skills education lessons that last long after we leave town. Our focus will be:

  • Updating our weight rooms
  • Updating the community garden
  • Creating a multi-purpose athletic /dance space
  • Remodeling a staff workroom area

Along with the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation, Team8 includes UnitedHealthcare, CBS EcoMedia, and local community partners.
