Peninsula Co-op donates to track project

Pacific Institute for Sports Excellence (PISE) gets financial boost for track project with Peninsula Co-op donation

PISE (Pacific Institute for Sport Excellence) has announced that it has received a contribution of $50,000 from Peninsula Co-op towards their one million dollar PISE Track Project.

Phase I of the track, a multi-purpose track and training zone, adjacent to the building overlooking the field, is currently being utilized by athletes, students and PISE members.

A ground breaking for the second phase of the track is planned for this year, pending full funding of the project.

The project also includes spectator seating, making the site ideal for hosting sporting and community events.

Peninsula Co-op’s donation will benefit another component of the track – an incline training area that links the track to the track and training zone and main PISE facility, and will provide wheelchair accessibility.
