The Florida Sectional Is Giving Back
The Florida Sectional has chosen Vita Nova of Renaissance Village as a charitable beneficiary of their event. Vita Nova provides transitional housing and life skills for teens aging out of foster care and entering society with no 'family support' or 'fall back plan.'
"Our goal is to provide them fitness equipment for their facility as well as some nutritional counseling. The event organizers have earmarked all event-day gate fees, event beverage sales, and a portion of registration fees to go directly to them," said event officials.
"We encourage our clients to inform us of charitable causes they are involved with and try to support them," says Todd Lynch of BGI Fitness. "We have gotten the opportunity to support some pretty amazing organizations that we didn't even know existed. We have striven to raise awareness of these less well known causes. Larger organizations (Red Cross, Goodwill, Salvation Army, etc.) have a huge support structure. We are interested in the grass roots organizations in our local community."
"Immediately we found Nova of Renaissance Village intriguing. Amongst other things they are tasked with teaching 'health and wellness' to the kids. We wanted to be able to deliver our message. We closed the gym one Saturday and brought the kids in. They received lectures on nutrition and CrossFit, before completing a WOD. We helped them plan WODs with minimal equipment needs. Everyone involved had an extremely rewarding experience. We hope to outfit their living residence with 'CrossFit' equipment they can use. In the meantime, we are excited to have them back soon.We have a unique opportunity to make a huge impact and positively influence these children with an introduction to fitness as a lifestyle."
