Let the good times roll for youth facing adversity!

MAX Fitness is thrilled to partner with Big Brothers Big Sisters for “Bowl for Kids Sake”. This is the largest annual fundraiser for them and we’ve set a goal of raising $5000!

The funds raised are crucial as the need for mentoring programs increases. Right now more than 140 kids are waiting to be enrolled for a mentor and the waitlist already has over 60 kids waiting. BBBS is not government funded and they have to raise their entire budget every year which is over $550,000.  Every dollar from this event helps BBBS connect more youth in developmental relationships. It’s also an opportunity for us here at MAX to participate in a fun activity for a good cause!
