2015 rings in Project Fit America’s 25-year anniversary. I look back and marvel at the leap of faith I took when I was 28 years old with no formal education beyond high school and a series of sales jobs that ultimately lead to the epiphany of starting this charity. I knew this was a calling that would be my life long passion. For 25 years, I have worked with all my gusto, mojo, faith and passion each and everyday. I am and always will be a woman on a mission.
The single greatest joy of this work is the people. Raising over $13,000,000.00 and seeing our charitable mission made real for over a half million kids (and counting) across this great nation! My deepest gratitude and daily inspiration comes from many. Without each of you none of this would be possible. A gratitude roll call to:
✭ Those that work beside me everyday
✭ Our PFA Trainers and Mentor Teachers in field, and their families, that support their work that takes them all across the country
✭ Every Principal, PE Teacher, Parent and PTO
✭ Our beloved Sponsors and their support teams that make this all happen
✭ The vibrant online community of people from all walks of life who share the passion for fit and healthy lifestyles
✭ Our amazing online donors that help provide for schools across the country.
✭ Our social media “ambassadors ” who champion our message and go above and beyond our expectations because of their deep personal passion to making a difference.
This milestone is ours to celebrate because of you. I am putting out the call to all of you to please share with us how Project Fit America has impacted you. Each of you has a story to share, be it personal, professional, or both!
In closing, I am blessed that I get the chance everyday of my life… to seek, find, explore, promote and engage people who care so deeply, walk the walk and talk the talk…you are the REAL deal and my inspiration. You always have been and always will be.
With gratitude and thanks to all! Cheers to the next 25! -Stacey
