Berlin, MD –Worcester Prep’s Head of School, Dr. John McDonald, with the help of students, presented a $1000 donation to the Catch a Lift Fund.
On February 10th, Worcester Preparatory School (WPS) held “Super Bowl Friday”. For a $2 donation to Catch a Lift (CAL), students and staff were able to wear their favorite team’s jersey or colors.
CAL enables veterans to recover and rehab both physically and mentally through physical fitness programs. CAL was founded in memory of Army Cpl. Chris Coffland, who lost his life in Afghanistan while serving in Operation Enduring Freedom in November 2009. CAL's mission is rooted in Chris’ lifelong belief that, through fitness, one can reach their highest potential both mentally and physically. CAL believes fitness is a personal choice, as each member chooses how and where to work out. They offer options for coaching, and mentors assures that each veteran's unique needs are met.
The fund was started by the family of Army Cpl. Coffland, who lives near WPS. His niece, Tony Phillips, graduated from WPS in 2005. Cpl. Coffland was also a teammate and roommate to Head of School, Dr. John McDonald, while attending Washington and Lee University.
