Youfit Health Clubs has announced sponsorship of a national fund-raising campaign benefiting the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals with a goal of raising $27,200 "for the kids".
Online PR News – 09-October-2013 – Nationwide – Youfit Health Clubs has announced sponsorship of a national fund-raising campaign benefiting the Children’s Miracle Network. As part of this sponsorship, Youfit has signed on to participate in the month-long “Miracle Marathon.”
In the “Miracle Marathon,” participants will raise money by walking or running a mile a day (or exercising an equivalent amount) until Oct. 26. As the campaign started Oct. 1, this would equal a marathon. In conjunction, Youfit is staging its own national campaign, called Youfit Miracle Miles, in which the 58 Youfit Health Club locations across the country will match every dollar donated by their staffs and members, up to $27,200.
On the final day of the Miracle Marathon, October 27, Youfit is inviting all its staff, members, and the entire community, to walk an extra mile for the kids. Youfit will host a special event at all gyms that day, in which participants will walk that extra mile at 2:27 local time (or exercise for 20 minutes), to raise more money. Everyone who joins a Youfit Health Club location that day will get a free week. And they’ll be joined by people all over the world, who will gather to walk one more mile, at precisely 2:27 p.m. in their local time zones.
“We like to give back to the communities in which we do business,” says Rick Berks, Founder/President of Youfit Health Clubs. “And it’s hard to think of a worthier cause than this one.”
All through the month, Youfit will be encouraging its members around the country to participate.
“We’d love for our communities to get involved in helping to raise money for these kids,” Rick Berks says. “And Oct. 27 – when we do the final mile - is going to be a very special event for this community. But it’s going to be even more special for the children who will benefit from it.”
