Excel Fitness Helps Children in Need This Holiday Season

Finding a way to share the warmth and kindness of Planet Fitness® is a priority for franchise groups. This past holiday season, two Excel Fitness clubs found ways to reach out to their communities and help children share in the spirit of the holidays.

Ramsey Minto, marketing specialist for Excel Fitness, explained the Northwest Arkansas team strives to do an event to give back to the community every year, and in 2021, the team decided to volunteer to help the Arkansas Children’s Hospital in Little Rock. To brighten the days of children in the hospital during the holiday season, the Excel team assembled fun goodie bags with gifts. The goodie bags donated to the children included items like coloring books, crayons and other crafts to put smiles on their faces. It was a way to show some care for children in need of an extra helping of joy at the holidays.

Another Excel Fitness club – this one located in Leander, Texas – teamed up with the local police department to make a difference over the holidays. This is the second year the club has worked with the Leander Police Department to contribute to its Blue Santa Fundraiser.

The police department places big blue barrels at participating locations so people can donate toys for children in need for the holidays, and the Leander Planet Fitness team managed to fill its bucket twice!

“The Leander club, as well as our company, is very big on engaging in the community!” explained Minto.
