-- “We are not charging admission for this event, although we will happily accept donations of any amount, which will go directly to Community United San José” (www.communityunitedsj.org)
, said Becky Williamson, President of lifeSport Fitness (http://www.lifesportfitness.net)
. “I will also be making a personal donation of $5 per person for any participant that attends the workout who has never done a boot camp workout with us before. This is our way of encouraging people to spread the word about the importance of exercise in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. We want to get people off the couch!”
Community United is a non-profit organization committed to creating opportunity for young people ages 6-17 by increasing their awareness of the possibilities to lead happier, more creative and productive lives. Community United currently services 60-70 kids a day at two youth centers in San Jose. A majority of these kids are “at-risk” youth identified as likely to fall into gangs and drug use unless there is some kind of successful intervention. Community United provides a safe place for the kids to go after school where they can get help with their homework, participate in sports and recreation activities and eat a healthy snack.100% of the proceeds from this event will go to Community United. Administrative staff members at Community United are all volunteers; so all donations go directly to services for the youth participating in the after-school programs.
lifeSport Fitness welcomes people of all ages and fitness levels to participate in this event. This free community workout will take place on Saturday, March 16th from 9:30-10:20 am at The Harker School auditorium (3800 Blackford Ave., San Jose CA 95117). Pre-registration is required.
