Local Gym Goes Above And Beyond For School District

“In an act of giving that must have seemed like Christmas, Thanksgiving and Easter all rolled into one, the Richmond Community School District received a donation of 64 pieces of exercise and cardio equipment worth tens of thousands of dollars from the Life Time Fitness location in Rochester Hills. The equipment was donated by the Life Time Fitness Foundation, a 501(c)(3) that provides financial and in-kind support to non-profit organizations that support the health and well being of children and families. When different Life Time Fitness locations purchase new machines, instead of selling off the used equipment, they donate it to local communities. The Richmond school district just happened to be in the right place at the right time. ‘We were pleased to provide equipment to Richmond Schools in support of their physical education and athletic programs,’ said Cheryl Anderson, Life Time Fitness Foundation administrator. ‘As an organization dedicated to helping individuals establish and lead healthy and active lifestyles, we are proud to help benefit youth programming in this area.’”
