Welcome to Holiday Season 2012! This time of year signifies the point at which we North-easterners collectively shift to cold weather, hibernation-thinking, and are persuaded from all sides to “get in the spirit of giving” by participating in the charity activities that define the season. Here at Excel Fitness the vibe is no different as we shift gears and welcome in our holiday charity drives!
We are still accepting donations of non-perishable food items to benefit the West Hartford Food Pantry. Now through the end of December, we are hosting a NEW toy drive (app. $10 value or higher) for HYPE’s Tons of Toys event, hosted Wednesday, December 12th at the Bond Ballroom in Hartford. Participants will receive $1 off their next training package for every food item and/or toy they donate between now and the end of the year (food drive donations must be in by Monday, December 3rd to qualify).
Also, don’t forget, we are continuing to collect used shoes (all varieties) to be refurbished and resold in sub-Saharan Africa by our partners at ReRun Shoes.
For more information on any of Excel Fitness’ charity work with local organizations or to suggest an organization that could use our support, please call Ilicia at (860) 523-8167 or stop by the gym today!
