200 miles + 12 runners + 1 purpose of homelessness awareness = mission complete! On Monday, November 14, 2016 we did just that. After 30+ hours of running, 2 RV’s, one flat tire, and many memories made together, we found ourselves weary but fulfilled as we rested against the White House fence on Pennsylvania Avenue. Over $25,000 was raised as a group from our studio clients, friends, and families before we ever left the parking lot in the early hours of Sunday morning on our journey. We could not feel more proud.
As 2016 comes to a close, we end the year with full hearts. Our team and volunteers are in the planning stages of our next LIFT session that will take place with one of our favorite partners, The Salvation Army. Workouts are being built, supplies are being ordered, and new plans for this program begin to take shape.
Consider raising a glass to us all month long! The Jim White Fitness Foundation is the charity partner this month at Wasserhund Brewing in Hilltop. A portion of all sales this month will go directly back to the LIFT program.
Happy Holidays from all of us at JWFF and LIFT. Cheers to a healthy 2017!
