Spreading the Love and Strength
Hello, lovely K Fit community! Welcome to the new and improved K Fit website! We hope you love it as much as we do. You can now sign up for classes through the website! One of our goals this year is to blog more often about our activities, charities, and goings on, and also some fun new elements like success stories, recipes, travel workouts, and guest writers! If you have a healthy recipe you love or burning desire to write about something strength, fitness or health related, let one of us know.
Our Charity of the Month campaign for 2017 was a huge success. We love how this community is so generous and excited to help out local charities. This is one of the many reasons K Fit is the best gym in town! Here is a list of organizations we supported in 2017.
- Bradley Angle House
- Operation Refugee Child
- Pixie Project
- Family Forward
- Oregon Food Bank
- Eagle Creek Fire Rescue Efforts
- Save the Children - Hurricane Maria Fund
- Undies for Everyone
- KGW Toy Drive
Dove Lewis Animal Hospital was January's charity. We did two free/donation "Bring a Friend" workouts and collected two giant bags full of towels, blankets, and toys, along with cash donations. Thank you for your support for our furry friends in need!
For February we supported Call to Safety, formerly Portland Women's Crisis Line. Ending domestic and sexual violence by providing confidential support services and education to empower is their mission. Call to Safety provides a comprehensive 24/7 crisis line, follow-up advocacy for survivors, support groups, community outreach and education, and sexual assault medical advocacy. Our couples workout and donation jar raised $250 for this important organization.
And if you're on Facebook, we're sure you are aware that two teams of K Fitters (and one very special guy) traveled down to Southern California for the San Diego Beer Chase. And while it may not have been the most organized relay we've ever run and we may have gotten lost a few times, we finished! And we loved the time we spent with each other and the sunshine.
