Green Sea Floyds Middle School Named Don’t Quit! Fitness Winner

HCS fitness Today, South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster and Jake Steinfeld, Chairman of the National Foundation for Governors' Fitness Councils, announced the three South Carolina schools that were selected to each receive a $100K DON’T QUIT! Fitness Center. The multi-million dollar physical fitness campaign has named Mauldin Middle School in Simpsonville, Sanders Middle School in Columbia and Green Sea Floyds Middle School in Green Sea as the state’s most outstanding schools for demonstrating leadership in getting and keeping their students fit. 

The National Foundation for Governors’ Fitness Councils program will make its way into all 50 states in the coming years. Each fitness center is financed through public/private partnerships with companies like The Coca-Cola Company, Amerigroup Foundation, Wheels Up and Nike, and does not rely on taxpayer dollars or state funding. TuffStuff Fitness International provides all of the fitness equipment, which is manufactured right here in the United States.  The Foundation’s goal is to build a nation of the fittest, healthiest kids in the world.

These state-of-the-art DON’T QUIT! Fitness Centers will be unveiled during ribbon cutting ceremonies this fall.
