GMC breaks ground again

Health and Wellness Center website launches

MILLEDGEVILLE — The Georgia Military College Foundation has announced the public launch of its new campaign website: http://healthandwellnesscampaign.com.

"The website is an important tool in helping us share information about our new Health and Wellness Center," said Powell Moore, GMC alumnus and campaign fund chair. “We hope people will take some time to visit the website and be inspired to lend their support.” 

Underlying its upbeat, “retro-meets-modern” theme, the website conveys a serious message. 

"GMC is committed to good health and fitness for our students, as well as to ending the obesity epidemic in Georgia," Moore added. "We are asking others to give their strong support to this important mission."

On the website, browsers can check out nostalgic GMC photos, as well as renderings of the modern, new health facility. The website includes insider details and frequently asked questions about the center, heart-warming stories about donors and fun-filled coverage of the center's events. Readers can also learn more about the obesity crisis in Georgia, which impacts nearly 40 percent of our state’s youth.

"The generosity of friends and alumni has yielded more than $2 million, but another $1million in private donations is needed to finish the task. We are asking everyone to make a donation, large or small," said Moore. "Together, we can lay the foundation for healthy students today, and the healthy future of GMC students to come.”

Donors have an opportunity to name fitness areas within the center, even individual equipment in cardio and weight training areas. And smaller donations go a long way toward the many incidental needs of the addition.

Funds to build this long-awaited Health and Wellness Center are coming from a combination of state allocations, institutional funds and private philanthropy. Following $7 million from the state, $7 million in institutional reserves and recent generous gifts of $2 million, the school is continuing to seek $1 million in private support to make the long-planned project a reality.
