On October 1, 2023 The Spirit Club Foundation held its annual Fitness Festival at the IvyMount School. Founded in 2015 the Spirit Club Foundation is a non-profit organization that provides financial assistance to persons with disabilities in order for them to pursue their fitness goals. In its first year the Spirit Club Foundation provided more than 750 scholarships, purchased equipment, provided financial assistance to and from gyms, funded training and certification for health and fitness professionals, awarded the achievements of athletes and those who support them, and provided technology grants to help people connect to virtual fitness at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This year’s fitness festival included demonstrations, giveaways, food, and awards. Check out the short highlight video below featuring current Spirit Club Foundation Board President Susan Hoffman and certified trainer Sam Smith.
