Here at FitDir we live and breathe fitness/ human wellness, but we also love to give back in extra special ways to the world that has opened its arms to our business. Have you been exposed to the Sixty Feet story yet? When we heard it we were so moved that we donated a high-end treadmill especially for the efforts of these good Christian people and the Ugandan orphans they’re helping.
Right now, at this very moment, there are millions of children born into a culture that doesn’t want or care about them. They’re alone as a direct result of extreme poverty and the AIDS epidemic still raging in Africa. Instead of being cared for these innocents are thrown into make-shift prisons where many of them slowly die of neglect, horrible conditions and malnutrition.
People can make difference. We can create a global culture where there are no more “third world countries.” Sixty does three things simultaneously:
- Helps people get in great shape by running, swimming, jogging, biking, etc., here in our local communities. They can get credit for their hard work either at organized functions or through a virtual race online.
- Brings awareness to others that God, morality, ethics, the universe etc., call on to take care of those who need it most.
- The money Sixty Feet gets through these fitness-based functions or sponsorships, cupcake sales and donations helps to dig just sixty feet down to where crystal clean water is found.
You know what, here’s a quote directly from their website:
“All the money raised by Team Sixty Feet runners, will go to provide immediate relief in the form of water, food, medical care, clothing and bedding. It will also go to providing long term restoration through educational sponsorships, justice, counseling, resettlement efforts and the love of Christ.”
