      Here’s what some of our RFAC participants have to say about including philanthropy into their businesses…

      One of my Core Values is: “Family, Friends, Fellow Man”

      With that, I firmly believe that one of my roles as both a business owner
      in a community and as a human being is to look after, love, and lift up
      my family, friends, and fellow man.

      By doing something small, like a charity workout, I feel like I can make a positive
      impact on my community.

      Ultimate Wellness

      Every year, we adopt a family through the Salvation Army and buy gifts for them. Usually its a single mother and several children and it’s nice to know that they felt special and loved on Christmas and hopefully it relieved the mother’s stress for even 1 day knowing that her children are taken care of. They provide the name of the family and the age/sex/interests of the child so we get to buy them something awesome that they’ll love.

      Faster Fitness

      We get so wrapped up in our own little worlds, it’s events like these that bring us back to reality and allow us to see that there are much more important things than what we busy ourselves with.

      RFAC Funds Raised to Date

      I’ve been a volunteer for one organization for over 25 years. I believe in their mission because their end goal directly impacts my own health not to mention the lives of 1.25 million Americans. Volunteering for JDRF is a no brainer for me.

      My friends, family and clients support what I believe in because I support what they believe in. Philanthropy is full circle.
