I had a meaningful conversation with gym member @davidasuarez last spring. He told me:
“A business exists to make money. What the people who run that business choose to do with that money, influence, and impact, is up to them.”
I’ve been asked often how I’ll know when this gym has “made it”.
I have no idea what that means, but I know part of “making it” is being able to have a positive impact in our community. @sarahsinnoakpark provides important services, advocacy, and education regarding domestic violence.
Unlike some massive charity, the funds we raised from our last charity boot camp will make a real difference for the staff here, and I can be confident that the funds will be used ethically.
This was part of our mission from the day we opened @rc_fit. I’m incredibly proud of myself, @mrs.oberlin, @abbythedinosaur7, and what we’ve done for our community.
Up next; charity Boot Camp to support @oprf.ping on Saturday, March 3!
