Community Partnerships

Hands overlapping in community like teamworkWe are actively pursuing partnerships with other local nonprofits, government entities and health care professionals.

Area leaders working with low-income people have concurred that the Gift of Fitness program is needed.

Organizations we are working with include the following:

    • The Law Project, a part of the Chicago Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, has been providing Gift of Fitness with pro bono legal assistance.
    • Venus Fitness in Fox Lake is hosting all fitness and nutrition classes as part of the Gift of Fitness program.

We are seeking to collaborate with local healthcare professionals in order to provide free blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol and chiropractic screenings.

We are also continuing to seek partnerships with other local social service agencies, government entities and businesses.
