"Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results." – Andrew Carnegie
What happens when a new nonprofit comes together with an up and coming fitness studio, SUCCESS! On November 2nd The Collaborative Community Mission held our first fundraiser with Rise Fitness Studio in the Village of Hamburg. Our goal was to make this fundraiser family friendly, and owner LauRen Gibson, and instructor Jenea Smith helped bring that to light. With the help of Rise staff, and all of those who came out to support us, we raised $1,200.00!
Participants enjoyed basket raffles, cider, coffee & donuts. There was a Sensory table for the children to enjoy along with 11 obstacles that they could go through as many times as they wanted. Each family in attendance received a free play pass to We Rock the Spectrum Kids Gym. The event was a huge hit amongst the children, their parents and caregivers.
The Collaborative Community Mission would like to thank Independent Health, Samcreations, Park Edge, Prima Oliva, The Aquarium of Niagara, The Bean Bastard Coffee Truck, and DeaLea Photography for their generous donations and time.
Lastly, we want to thank the amazing team at RISE Fitness Studio for helping us make our first fundraiser a success! We look forward to collaborating with them again in the very near future!
As Henry Ford said, “Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, and working together is success."
