Within 6 months of losing my husband I realized I wanted to give back. I could see what fitness was doing for me personally, I could see the changes, and I wanted so desperately to share my passion so maybe someone would be able to find the same renewal of life and spirit.
Finally, after 3 years of thinking, planning, and dreaming we are starting the process of giving back.
One Fit Widow has formally been established as a charity nonprofit with the goal of helping others who are grieving learn the benefits of taking care of themselves during times of extreme stress and loss.
One Fit Widow will be moving forward with donating spots in our personal virtual training program. We will ask for applications to be submitted by widows and widowers to work 1.1 with Michelle and the One Fit Widow team to change their life from the inside out.
At the completion of each training period, one deserving widow will be granted a wish to be funded by the nonprofit. This wish will be an active item off the bucket list they shared with their late spouse (think hiking the Grand Canyon or running a half marathon). This program will be called Live the List, and it’s the desire to see people move forward with their dreams while honoring their past by living a big life.
Mitch would so approve.
We are now able to take formal donations and launch this dream in 2014.
