National Fitness Partners Races to the Finish Line for Several Charity Organizations
The race is on for National Fitness Partners! The group worked with several charity organizations during their race events. On April 30, the group sponsored the Independence Blue Cross Broad Street Run, which is Philadelphia’s iconic road race.
This year marked the 43rd annual race and was the franchise group’s third year as a sponsor. As a sponsor, National Fitness Partners had activations, including a PF® tent and swag at various points for the event. More than 28,000 runners came to run in the 10-mile race. There were six NFP employees who volunteered during the event.
“Running Broad Street was, and always has been, a great experience. This was my third year running, and despite the weather being the worst it’s been, I hit my best time. Running alongside friends, co-workers and so many people from the community is a blast, and it’s an awesome feeling crossing the finish line knowing all the hard work and hours of training paid off. I can’t wait for next year,” said Tim Lagos, director of fitness training and programming for National Fitness Partners.
Additionally, National Fitness Partners’ Broomall location in Pennsylvania was a sponsor for the Healthy Kids Running Series. The initiative strived to engage communities and families by providing an inclusive youth running experience, inspiring confidence and healthy living in kids. The running series occurred every Sunday during the month of May.
The running series offered age-appropriate running events, including the 50- and 75-yard dashes, the quarter-mile, the half-mile and the 1-mile run. Kids competed each week for a chance to earn points, and the boys and girls who accumulated the most points at the end of the month were awarded trophies. In total, there were about 120 kids who participated. The Broomall club’s staff members helped set up the race, guided the kids, handed out waters and more.
