Fitness Together Named Official Health and Fitness Sponsor For American Diabetes
Association of Eastern New England’s Step Out: Walk to Fight Diabetes
BOSTON, Mass. – (May 3, 2010) – Fitness Together Massachusetts Owners Group, which specializes in one-on-one personal training, has assembled a record-setting 40 fitness studios across Massachusetts and Rhode Island to serve as the Official Health and Fitness Sponsor for the American Diabetes Association of Eastern New England’s Step Out: Walk to Fight Diabetes.
From May through September, participating Fitness Together studios will raise a minimum of $40,000 [$1,000 per studio] for the ADA Eastern New England Chapter. Clients at each studio will have a chance to sign up for the Fitness Together “Cardio for a Cure” program, collecting donations from family and friends for each mile they log doing exercises like walking, running, biking and swimming. The public is invited to join in and can sign up for free at any participating Fitness Together studio.
“It’s a natural fit for our clients to make the most of their workouts and support a fantastic cause at the same time,” said Jeff Jervik, president and CEO of Fitness Together Holdings, Inc. “Diabetes is a major health issue affecting more than 24 million Americans. Diabetes incidence continues to grow, now reaching epidemic proportions and it’s a disease that deserves more attention, deeper support, broader education and swifter action from people and organizations that can help like Fitness Together.”
Proceeds from the “Cardio for a Cure” program will be tallied in October when Fitness Together also sponsors three ADA Step Out: Walk for Diabetes events. The walks will take place Oct. 16, in Worcester, Mass., Oct. 17 in Providence, R.I. and Oct. 23 in Boston.
“We are very appreciative of the Massachusetts and Rhode Island Fitness Together studios and their teams of trainers for taking on this important issue”, said Chris Boynton, Executive Director for the Eastern New England area of the American Diabetes Association. “Fitness Together’s mission to help their clients live healthier, happier lives is very much compatible with our mission to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the quality of life for all those living with the disease.”
We are very excited at Newton Centre and South End to be a part of this great cause and hope that our clients will be too! This is a great way for all of you to get in some extra cardio to help you reach your goals and to help put a stop to Diabetes. Anything helps, talk to family, friends, co-workers to see if they will sponsor your miles and let's help the Newton and South End locations raise the most money for the ADA! Plus, all of the cardio you do for this great cause will also count towards your Cardio Club Points so you can earn free sessions too!!
