Fit Factory is known for its luxury fitness centers, commitment to promotiong healthy lifestyle choices, and the overall community feel created within the gyms. An often overlooked aspect of Fit Factory however, is our sponsorship of St. Jude. In fact, Fit Factory is actually one of the presenting sponsors of this incredible organization.
For those who don’t know, St. Jude is a non-profit organization dedicated to treating and defeating childhood cancer. The work done on a daily basis by St.Jude has contributed to an increase in the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% in 1962 to 80% today. However, the operation of this life-saving organization comes with a cost. St. Jude looks to their sponsors to help keep their $1 billion facility in operation so that they can contrinue their efforts to battle against childhood cancer.
Some fast facts about St.Jude include:
St. Jude freely shares its discoveries for the advancement of healthcare for all
St. Jude has 24 official partner sites in 17 countries
St. Jude treats 8,500 children with cancer every year
St. Jude never bills families for treatment, travel, housing, or food because they believe “all a family should worry about is helping their child live”
Fit Factory is continuing this sponsorship this year with efforts in and out of all clubs. There will be opportunities to join us in our support efforts in the upcoming months so be sure to keep an eye out for classes, events. And more. Come sweat with us for a cause!
