As flooded communities try to piece their lives back together, my team and I have decided to launch a support project in order to assist those devastated by Mother Nature.
Red Deer, Alberta, CAN (PRWEB) July 09, 2013
When Cabel McElderry, owner of the Red Deer personal training center, Fit Body Boot Camp, and business partner, Pat Kerr, saw the flooding unfold in southern Alberta they knew they had to get involved.
Kerr explains, “As flooded communities try to piece their lives back together, my team and I have decided to launch a support project in order to assist those devastated by Mother Nature.”
McElderry and Kerr’s flood relief efforts include donating 50% of the first month’s revenue from any new member who joins the Red Deer Fit Body Boot Camp to organizations involved in providing relief for flood victims, as well as turning the fitness center, One-to-1 Fitness (also owned and operated by McElderry) into a donation collection site, where they have already collected over $2,000 in donations from the community and thousands in essential household items. Also, a gift certificate for one month of Fit Body Boot Camp will be given to every person who donates $50 to One-to-1 Fitness’ flood relief efforts.
Red Deer personal trainer McElderry says, “Our public mission is to change 10,000 lives by 2015, we'll continue to do that any way we can. I've always felt it's important to do for others what you pray someone might do for you if the situation were ever reversed.”
The Fit Body Boot Camp Red Deer owners have also organized a day to help the High River community, who have been particularly devastated by the floods, clean up and removed debris from neighborhoods and surrounding areas. On July 5th, 19 volunteers gathered at McElderry and Kerr’s One-to-1 Fitness center made their way to the High River community and spent over 200 man-hours cleaning and removing trash; making the area safer for residents to return to and rebuild.
Kerr says of the tragedy, “Being in High River brings the severity of this disaster into new light. You truly can't appreciate just how bad it is or what these people are facing until you stand inside their completely destroyed home. When you see someone with glazed eyes tending to their demolished lawn rather than beginning to strip their soggy, moldy basement, you get a chilling sense of just how much pain they are feeling. We don't want this issue to get old and fade as there's a higher need than many may realize.”
