Granite Fitness donates $2,500 to SEED

DOVER — The Seacoast Educational Endowment for Dover, a nonprofit organization dedicated to elevating academic excellence in the public schools of Dover, NH, recently accepted a $2,500 donation to promote health and wellness at Dover Middle School.

Granite Fitness and Performance is a best-in-class fitness center located on Locust Street in Dover. As a lifelong Dover resident and athlete, Granite Fitness owner Ian Duffy is committed to giving back to his community. “It is very important to introduce good health and exercise habits to adolescents and teens,” Duffy said. “Staying fit can help improve academic performance, build confidence, and lower your risk of chronic disease.”

Studies show that regular physical activity can help teens learn to cope with the physical and emotional challenges they face every day. The donation will help DMS purchase kettlebells in various sizes, cast iron weights and storage racks. All of this equipment will be used in the DMS physical education program.
