CELEBRATING ANOTHER YEAR—BRING IT 2016!

Our humble grass-roots charity work began in 2010, raising money for causes through sporadic kickboxing classes.  Appealing to the community, our fitness fever concept captured the hearts of many.  In 2014, we formed our non-profit corporation and submitted our exhaustive application for tax-exempt status.  Miraculously, the IRS and the other relevant government agencies bestowed this “honor” upon us in 90 days.  Non-profit experts agree this is unprecedented given the heightened level of scrutiny that new non-profits face today.   

FLYING IN THE PERFORMANCE ZONE

Wellness Education with Many Mansions Residents

One year after receiving our tax-exempt status, we are now operating in the “Performance Zone”.  We devote every day to ascertaining our community’s health needs and it is our pleasure to serve strong with a smile.  Our first “Miracle of Movement Gala”, at which we honored several inspirational community residents who have “smashed” their health obstacles, was literally a sell out and we were fortunate to be able to share proceeds with Ballet For All Kids. We enjoy a sustainable relationship with Many Mansions by providing health education to its low-income residents and our individual training programs for special populations who cannot attend traditional gyms under normal circumstances is blossoming.  All we need are more licensed fitness professionals who will selflessly donate their time at least once a month with a special needs individual along with space provided by fitness facilities.  If you are interested in joining our Movement and Sound volunteer team, please email admin@fit4thecause.org.
