As a business owner, you always start off trying to find a way to grow your business and impact the community, all while trying to keep your head above water. "I started my fitness business because I wanted to help residents in my area reach their fitness goals, gain more confidence about themselves, learn to make lifestyle changes, and just make people feel better about themselves” says Summit Fit Dojo owner and head fitness instructor, Javier Lozano, Jr. Once those goals have been achieved, than it’s critical to see how a local business can give back to their community, in a variety of ways. That is why on Saturday, September 26th @ 8:00 AM, Summit Fit Dojo and their clients will get together for a community wide charity event, at their headquarters location, to raise money for Growing Home, a local non-profit in Westminster, CO. Growing Home was established in 1998 with the goal of serving their community with a “wrap-around” approach, by helping families in need of shelter, healthcare, homelessness assistance, early childhood interventions, educational assistance, and providing a food pantry that is stocked daily. In 2014, Growing Home proudly served over 4,600 families, including more than 16,000 individuals, which 61% of them were children. Since 2008, Summit Fit Dojo has helped everyday individuals make transformations in their lives by inspiring them to be better than they were yesterday, through fitness and nutrition. Now, Summit Fit Dojo has decided to team up with Growing Home and organize a community wide charity event, with the goal of raising between $3,000 to $5,000, with 100% of the proceeds going straight to Growing Home. During the charity event, participants will do a “squat for charity” challenge by performing as many squats in 120 seconds. Participants will than need to ask for pledges from individuals, which begin at $.10 per squat and go up from there. The average person can do about 100 to 120 squats in 2 minutes, meaning the pledgees would only need to donate about $10 per person. “This community wide charity event is open to anyone that wants to help Growing Home, and be apart of a bigger cause” says Lozano. In addition, Summit Fit Dojo is looking to partner with some local businesses that would be willing to donate services and/or products as raffle prizes.  Sponsors of this community wide charity event will have the opportunity to also place a booth here about their business.
