PRLog - March 9, 2014 - CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- CHARLOTTE, NC (March 10, 2014) --- Author and ACSM Certified Fitness Group Instructor, Tamara Jackson and Wheelchair Advocate, Author, Mentor, Sharina Jones, team up to create a crowdfunding program to raise funds for a new fitness program for women in wheelchairs.

The two authors have joined forces to focus on the importance of fitness for thousands of women in wheelchair that number 68% in the U.S. of wheelchair users.   Tamara Jackson created 265Point, also the title of her book, to empower women who need to lose 30 lbs. or more.  265Point.com is an online personal fitness program.  Sharina Jones is an author, mentor, founder of SharinaJones.com and national speaker regarding the injury and illness transition for thousands of women who suddenly will depend on the wheelchair as a necessity in their lives.

Both entrepreneurs are committed to the project, Fitness-Women-in-Wheelchairs, at the Indiegogo.com crowdfunding website.  The public is asked to join the movement to make this program possible.  Contributions begin at $5.00.

The book “265 Point” is the heart-wrenching account of Tamara’s top weight at 265, an admitted junk food addict, she found her turning point when her doctor warned her that disease and illness were eminent, or worse.   Tamara knew that “worse” meant death.  Committed to change her life from obese to a role model on the demonstration floor of the Dr. Oz show, Tamara Jackson, certified by the American College of Sports Medicine, is now a mentor for millions of African American women needing to change their life.

Sharina Jones a wheelchair user since the age of five years old following a shooting, Sharina Jones remembers her dying father’s words to remain positive as “ The Sun Comes Up Tomorrow”. Sharina’s book by the same title is an inspirational story that in turn moved her to partner with Tamara to ensure that women in wheelchairs have a solid professional outlet to exercise and make fitness a part of their daily routine.  “We’re out to prove that Disability does not mean inability”, says Sharina.
