Chandler, AZ (PRWEB) May 30, 2013
After personal trainer and Fit Body Boot Camp owner Ben Hessel recognized a need for an after school program for kids and teens of all ages at the New Hope Community Church, he knew that the Chandler boot camp could help. The fitness boot camp franchise came up with an idea to partner with New Hope Community Church Pastor Eli Wyatt and host a Charity Boot Camp to raise funds.
“In late 2012 New Hope Community Church started seeing a lot of kids come after school to hang out, play sports, get tutored and fed, and really just have somewhere to go,” explains Ben. He adds, “Fit Body Boot Camp partnered with New Hope and came up with the idea to run a Charity Boot Camp to raise funds for more resources. This would allow for new staff to be hired, and for more food, sports equipment, and school supplies to be purchased.”
The Charity Boot Camp in Chandler was held on Saturday, May 11th, with over 25 people participating in the boot camp and at least 50 people contributing to the charity. Before the end of the event, Fit Body Boot Camp had collected a grand total of $3,000 dollars for the development of the after school youth program, thus making the Charity Boot Camp a major success.
“Our recent Charity Boot Camp was a great success in my book,” says New Hope Community Church Pastor Eli Wyatt. He explains, “Partnering with Ben Hessel and Fit Body Boot Camp provided a unique fundraising experience while also developing a community connection. The atmosphere was fun and high energy. At the end of the day friendships were established, funds were raised, and as a result New Hope's After School Program will continue to reach the young people of our community.”
Proud of the efforts of everyone involved in the Charity Boot Camp event, Ben plans to team up with the New Hope Community Church again in the future and continue to raise funds for local charities by hosting a monthly Charity Boot Camp to give the Chandler community and other charities a chance to participate.
Hessel explains, “Our goal is to host a monthly Chandler Fit Body Charity Boot Camp and feature a new charity every month. This would be huge for the Chandler community outreach, the church's community goals, and is a great way to get involved”
Chandler Fit Body Boot Camp is located at 251 N. Roosevelt Ave., Chandler, Arizona and is home to 23 full time members who are committed to getting healthy and fit.
