Last year, we’re happy to tell you, we surpassed our goal of donating 5,000 bags through our 1 for 100 Program. So this year we wanted to raise the bar even higher. Our 2016 goal is to donate 20,000 bags.
For every bag purchased online, we get one step closer.
Fitmark’s 1 for 100 Program is all about giving back to the community. From the beginning, we made it a commitment to work hard and grow our company so that we not only achieved our growth projections, but that we also gave back as much as we could. It’s because of our loyal customers that we’ve made this happen much sooner than we anticipated.
Last year, we helped many of the Boys & Girls Clubs in our own neighborhood, as well as other cities across the States. Then we met an amazing guy called Danny from Together We Rise. He’s helping foster kids across the States live a better life, and we got involved with their annual Reunion, this year at Disneyland. “It’s pretty special to be a part of,” says CEO Mark Samuel:
What’s even more special are the men and women operating these summer and after-school programs. Real leaders in the community. If you ever get the chance, swing by and meet a few. Even offer an hour or two of your time if you can.
Later in the fall Fitmark’s Founder and CEO, Mark Samuel joined a panel of expert guest speakers to talk about the business of fitness. These career and development sessions are part of the BGC’s after-school programs, made possible by the Los Angeles County Alliance for Boys & Girls Clubs. Mark plans to get more involved in these Teen Summits in 2016. He told us:
It’s a real privilege speaking with these kids. If I can help at least a handful, that’ll be a win since I plan to be involved even more throughout the years, Mark Samuel.
It’s going to be another exciting year. Stay tuned!
