The Importance of Fundraising Classes: Special Guest Blog

posted on November 19, 2021

When you think of fundraising classes the first goal that comes to mind is just that, raising funds. Most often these classes support a cause like a  nonprofit who is dedicated to making a difference. Other times the focus is an individual who for whatever reason is in need of support. 


In my experience I find these events often build something much deeper and even more impactful than just money. Often times we see strangers join together for the first time during these classes united to  increase awareness on the cause being supported. How can we spread the word? How can we get the message out? How can we use this as a platform to help others outside of the gym long after the workout ends. 


These types of classes build community and more often than not let others know they are not alone in their journey. For my class specifically it was my first time meeting the majority of the guests who showed up to support. The idea that someone who I had never met before took time out of their life to come support my family and a cause we hold so close left me inspired. Inspired to be better. Inspired to do better. I walked away from our event encouraged to show up for others the way my community showed up for me. The commitment to be that person there for someone when they need me the most. The same way each person who walked through the gym door of my December superclass stood by me when I needed them the most. 


In May I will be running the Pittsburgh Marathon representing those impacted by brain tumors. Specifically glioblastoma. Please stay tuned for updates and future posts on how you can help support our May marathon event and other future fundraising initiatives.
