Support Program Expenses
Although the program operates with a generous in-kind support from UTEP (i.e. facility use, utility expenses, parking arrangements), the program has some minimal but reoccurring expenditures. These include the hourly wage of the trained program supervisors (Kinesiology undergraduate students do not get paid, only program supervisors), as well as facility, equipment and research expenditures. Our continued ability to offer the program to older adults from the community, the program’s financial security is vital. Your donation would contribute to our program’s finances.
Help to Expand the Program
Our program has been functioning out of a single facility location on the UTEP campus. In order to better serve the entire Paso Del Norte Region and provide a truly accessible program for all older adults in the region, opening new program locations will be necessary. Your donation will help to secure the funds necessary for such program expansion.
Your donations will facilitate new research relevant to older adult fitness, as well as other areas of Kinesiology. Increased research productivity ultimately allows us to further educate and support the needs of our community and participants.
Maintaining the Facilities
Our facility provides a unique, safe, and well-equipped exercise environment. Although small, our facility is currently equipped with the most comprehensive, high quality and well maintained exercise equipment. However, equipment wears out, gets old or just sometimes breaks. With the help of your contributions we will be able to keep our facility in top condition and continue to provide our participants the best program we can.
