HeavyWeights Fitness Family Raises $5000 For Daffodil Place & Cancer Society
Well, 2015 has been a tremendous year for us here at Heavyweights.
We’ve seen incredible transformations, broken records on the platforms and had a ton of fun along the way.
What better way to end the year than with the HW Family coming together to raise money for an amazing cause.
Just 20 days ago, we decided to raise money for Daffodil Place, a facility that allows cancer fighters some of the comforts of home during treatments. Loved ones can stay with them, they are provided with transportation, a sense of community and the chance to smile during some dark days.
We had the chance to tour Daffodil Place and its effect on us was profound. We know a thing or two about transformations, but witnessing the transformative power of a wig fitting and taking part in an impromptu singalong in the community room there, touched us and fueled our determination to make a difference.
Our original goal was $3000. That would provide 30 nights accommodations at Daffodil Place. We called it “Heavyweights A Month of Nights Against Cancer”. Well, we surpassed that goal fairly quickly and reset at $4200.
We’re so proud to announce that we smashed that goal too. This morning, we presented a cheque for $5000! That’s 50 nights at Daffodil Place.
It’s all thanks to the generosity and caring of our entire HW Family. Their donations and enthusiasm were the driving force for our fundraising drive.
Today, we made a difference. We raised the bar and we showed that hard work and passion can achieve anything…even in a short period of time.
We already have ideas for next years initiatives and 2016 is going to be even better.
