Community Involvement

Staying Alive Fitness is a business created on the belief that a lifestyle change towards active and healthy living will make a difference for any individual. As part of this great community, we feel the responsibility of supporting it wholeheartedly.

Yoga in the Park
This year (2011), we celebrated the 3rd Annual Yoga in the Park fundraiser. Thursday evenings, July through August, Staying Alive Fitness held free Yoga instruction around the band shell at Prospect Park. We initiated this annual program in 2009 as a fundraiser for the Upper Credit Humane Society (UCHS) Shelter, after Leanne adopted two dogs from this shelter. The first program netted $2,000 in cash along with many pounds of food for the shelter. In 2010, the proceeds were also donated to the UCHS. This summer, the program shared the profits with the Acton Food Share and the Links2Care Backpack Program. $500 was raised for Links2Care and 400 lbs of food and $125 gift certificate from Sobeys was donated to the Acton Food Share. We are very pleased that we were able to assist our community once again. We look forward to another successful summer in 2012.

Thank you to our Yoga In The Park Sponsors; we appreciate your support.

4th Annual Yoga in the Park starting July 12th 2012, Thursdays at 7:00pm

Multiple Sclerosis Bike Ride
The first annual from Acton to Waterloo took place in September of 2010. Staying Alive Fitness sponsored its own in-house team through financial contributions and training. Everyone made it back exhausted but happy, knowing their efforts benefited a worthy cause. And as further accomplishment they proudly accepted the “Best New Team” award.

In August 2011, Staying Alive Fitness entered a team of 16 riders into the 2nd Annual MS Bike Ride and were very proud to win the “Most Spirited Team” award. Leanne was asked by the organizers of the event to lead the stretches for over 600 riders before the race which she was pleased and honoured to do. The Staying Alive Fitness team was happy to raise over $10,000 towards this worthy cause.

Upper Credit Humane Society (UCHS) Shelter
Our hearts goes out to all the animals in the no-kill Upper Credit Humane Society (UCHS) Shelter in Erin. So many animals hoping for a new home and caring for these animals until their new family can happily take them home requires a lot of commitment and even more resources. Staying Alive Fitness supports the efforts of the UCHS in a variety of ways.

Links – 2 – Care
Staying Alive Fitness is grateful for the opportunity to annually sponsor a deserving family on Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter through the Links-2-Care initiative.
