Fitness-Themed Charity Event to Be Held to Raise Funds for Haiti Disaster Relief

NEW YORK CITY, NY., December 7, 2016 - New Yorkers will partake in a day of fitness and self-defense classes in the effort to send much needed aid to Haitians.

Online PR News – 09-December-2016 – New York City/NY – It’s easy to forget, however, that our neighbors in the Caribbean are still struggling to find loved ones and rebuild their homes. The small country continues to struggle from the earthquake that devastated its land 6 years ago. But in October, Hurricane Matthew aggressively swept through Haiti wreaking havoc on the fragile land and civil infrastructure that Haitians worked so hard to rebuild. Aside from the 1000+ people that have died during the storm there is now the spread of disease, like cholera, taking lives.

We know it’s difficult to not succumb to the inertia of global-issue overwhelm. Many of us feel
powerless to help ourselves, let alone extend help to others so far away. It is important not to lose sight of those who are in desperate need. Kim, our co-founder, has done the research and made the connections to find a charitable association that you can trust to help the Caribbean’s forgotten. The Haiti Development Project has a specific mission to help children in Haiti receive relief and education.

Please attend the event, December 17th, 2016. Time: 9am to 1pm, Ripley Grier Studios, 520 8th Avenue. 2pm to 7pm, Vitor Shaolin Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy, 780 8th Avenue.
