Thank you. Thank you so very much for being such good people. You raised $100,000 for Pacific Autism and we are so grateful for you.
When I was told that you were making the last payment on your $100,000 commitment, I said, “Wait, what?!?!?! $100,000 from Fitness Professionals? Whoa THAT’S AMAZING!” Instantly, I had visions of trainers getting up at 5am to meet clients in the gym, forgoing the daily cappuccino so you could donate to Pacific Autism, giving everything you could to make people healthier inside the gym and out. Then and now, happy tears well up in my eyes thinking about all the good people at CANFITPRO making the world a better place. There is a seemingly endless supply of less-than-pleasant news that challenges us these days. You remind us that the world is full of amazing people with compassion and a sense of community. What you have done is a beautiful thing.
Specifically, you contributed to the pre-school capital campaign that is the day home to more than 30 youngsters. It is a neuro-diverse preschool where kids on the spectrum, neuro-typicals or kids with developmental disabilities are able to learn new things every day. The playground outside is beautiful and is used rain, shine or snow (yes, I said snow).
There is an airplane sticker in the play area with your name on it. It keeps watch over those little angels. If you ever want to see it, we’ll arrange a tour.
In the meantime…
