In 2012, The Chargers Champions, a program of the San Diego Chargers, awarded MBHS a $75,000 grant to improve facilities and provide equipment for the MBHS weight room.
The MBHS Alumni Association funded the fans and murals, and the Friends of PB Secondary Schools funded up-grades to the flooring. The room features individual weight stations, a Pilates area, medicine balls and flat-screen televisions.
“The Chargers made it possible to transform our weight room into a place that benefits all of our students and has become a source of pride for our school community,” said Jorge Palacios, MBHS athletic director. “What was once an outdated, unused area has been turned into one of the centerpieces of our school and a resource our students use to develop a passion for lifelong fitness. I’d like to thank the Chargers and the Spanos family for their support of Mission Bay High School.”
