Steve Lichtman, owner of 4 Fitness Together franchises in MA recently sent this letter to his friends to update them on his fundraising efforts for the American Diabetes Association. For this year, Steve has personally pledged to push himself to go 200 miles.
All our MA & RI Fitness Together trainers and a majority of our clients have joined in our Cardio For A Cure campaign. FT Gets Results will bring you updates from some of them over the next few weeks.
Dear Friends: I am proud to announce that I have joined Fitness Together’s Cardio for a Cure program to help raise funds for the ADA’s Step Out: Walk to Fight Diabetes. Personally, I have pledged to do 200 miles of running, walking and kayaking.
So far, I’ve done 154 miles and I feel great. My personal fundraising goal is $500 towards our company’s goal of $40,000. So far, we’ve raised $24,000 – but I need your help to do more. The American Diabetes Association is the only non-profit organization supporting all 23.6 million Americans living with diabetes—including type 1 and type 2. Few people are aware that diabetes causes more deaths a year than breast cancer and AIDS combined. Two out of three people with diabetes die from heart disease or stroke. Please help me in my quest to support this important initiative, and to ultimately find a cure for this devastating and debilitating disease that touches so many families. Here’s how you can help: Please sponsor me by committing to a dollar amount per mile, or with a lump sum donation. Whatever you can give whether it’s $10, $20 or more is much appreciated!
There are two ways that you can donate:
1) Online: Go to www.diabetes.org/fitnesstogether. Scroll down and select (town) which is my Fitness Together studio location. Once there, scroll down to find and click on my name. Then click on “sponsor me” and you will be able to make a donation in any amount.
2) By Check: Write a check made payable to the American Diabetes Association and mail to Steve Lichtman 37 Ellen Rd. Stoneham, MA 02180. Your donation in any amount will help us support this very important cause to find a cure for diabetes.
Thanks so much for your support.
Sincerely, Steve Lichtman
