A ribbon cutting was held Tuesday for a newly renovated elementary school in West Baltimore.

Under Armour representatives joined Mayor Catherine Pugh and several city council members for a first look at James McHenry Elementary.

Some 1,500 Under Armour volunteers donated more than 1,600 hours to help transform the building. The group worked on the auditorium, food pantry, cafeteria, and courtyard. They also freshly painted the hallways, some of them were given some artistic designs, and renovated the gymnasium.

"The gym is amazing," said 6th grader Malik Johnson. "I would just love the moment we get to play on it."

Under Armour said this is a part of its ongoing efforts to give back to the Baltimore community.
