Wildfires have been ravishing British Columbia; our home, and yours. We decided this was one cause worth working out for – even in the middle of a heatwave.
Raising Money to Fight BC Wildfires
If you follow us on Instagram, you might have heard of Member Appreciation Day (MAD). It’s the day we go MAD for members and express our appreciation for everyone who attends our gyms across BC.
On July 29th, we took it a step further with our “You Work Out, We Donate” event. On this day, we donated $1 for every in-club workout, and $2 for every new membership sign-up to the Canadian Red Cross, in support of BC wildfire relief efforts.
Sure, it was tough to work out during the second hottest month on record, but this was one incentive 9,908 of you couldn’t resist, and neither could we.
$10,370 towards Fighting Wildfires
Together, we raised $10,370 for the Canadian Red Cross, which is working tirelessly to keep the wildfires under control. Here’s a breakdown of the stats:
- 9,908 workouts across all clubs: 9,908 x $1 = $9,908
- 231 new memberships: 231 x $2 = $462
- Total donation: $10,370
Our most important announcement is a huge THANK YOU to everyone helping us keep fitness hot, and our forests cool. We couldn’t have done it without you, and you have our utmost pride and respect. So what’s next? We challenge you to continue staying in shape, bettering your health, and fighting for our planet. Follow us @FitnessWorldCanada to be the first to know next time we run an event like this, have a prize up for grabs, or host outdoor workout sessions.
