Lewiston Middle School eighth-graders Abby Madden, front, and Rebekah Camire try out new state-of-the-art equipment in the school fitness room during gym class Thursday morning. The game they are playing is called GameBike, in which users must pedal to play a video game. In the background, others are playing Dance Dance Revolution and using traditional treadmills. The money to purchase the equipment came from a nearly half-million-dollar grant from the JTG Foundation, a private Maine foundation established by John T. Gorman Jr. of Yarmouth in 1995. Gorman is a grandson of Leon Leonwood Bean and a stockholder of L.L. Bean Inc.
