In my 22+ years in the fitness & publishing industry, and in my 8 years of PrayFit Ministries,
I doubt I’ve written anything that has meant as much to me. And I have a feeling it’s going to mean something special to you too.
DID YOU KNOW?
663 million people on the planet don’t have clean water. Women and children in countries across the world walk for miles
to wait for hours to fill 80 lb. fuel cans with water that’s dirty and diseased.
I believe the fitness industry can do more to help.
That’s where WE come in. We’re dedicating our workouts to charity.
But we can’t do it alone. Lifters, runners, yogis, walkers, you name it, we need you. Indeed, from lifters to runners, studios to boxes, I’m hoping you will partner with us. And if I can be so bold, we need a few of you to help us build teams.
We need you to help us dig wells.
So here’s the skinny: We need a handful of Ambassadors to join the iPrayFit Project by going to https://my.charitywater.org/prayfit/the-iprayfit-project.
The best way to help us is to SET UP YOUR TEAM by clicking on that button.
Give your fundraiser a title and then encourage at least 10 people to give any amount. That’s it. You can dedicate one workout, one month or an entire year to this cause. It’s up to you. But we will not stop until we reach our goals.
Much like runners often run for charitable causes, this is the vehicle for the fitness industry, regardless of your training choice. So, you can dedicate your marathons, your leg day, your monthly walk, in fact, you can dedicate ANYTHING to the iPrayFit Project to help raise money. But if setting up a fundraiser isn’t your cup of tea, you can give directly to the general fund or you can sponsor someone else’s fundraiser. Pretty cool.
That’s it, guys. We just need help. I’m so grateful that I can look to you. If you have questions and would like more detail,
email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, subject line: iPrayFit Project.
Imagine how many pounds of water we could carry.
Think of the miles we could run for those families.
And get this. If we raise $10,000 (the cost of building one (1) well through
charity: water, we could supply a community with clean water FOR LIFE. Our goal is to build five.
Of course, we can’t feasibly travel to countries around the globe and grab shovels, nor can we be on site with kids with autism coast-to-coast, but we do our share of manual labor in gyms, studios, and on the road.
If every rep, mile and stretch meant help to others,
would that make your workouts mean something entirely different? I believe it would.
Like I’ve said many times, honoring God with our bodies isn’t measured by our waist, but by our reach.
And that’s what we’re trying to do; reach people where they are by what we do where we are.
