Gold's Gym Orlando in Dr Phillips and Soldier Work Together with Dads Against Down Syndrome

Soldier's charitable act inspires local businesses, Gold's Gym Orlando and TAG Business, to help fight against Down Syndrome.

Orlando, FL (PRWEB) February 18, 2014 - Just before Jarrod shipped off to Fort Bragg, he was delighted to find out that he was the big winner of a 60 inch flat-panel television from the Facebook "check-in and win" contest from Gold's Gym Dr Phillips. However, Jarrod did not immediately have visions of hanging that brand new television on his wall to enjoy for when he returns from active duty. Jarrod and his family could not wait to donate this incredible prize to Dads Against Down Syndrome (D.A.D.S.) for a charity auction to raise money to help the Down Syndrome cause.

"This was amazing to us," said Pleasant Lewis, owner of five Gold's Gym Locations in Central Florida. "Here's a guy who's willing to make the ultimate sacrifice of his own life to protect our freedom as a soldier, but instead of taking his grand prize for his own families benefit, he decided help others. We were all so inspired by this act of selflessness the we also wanted to help."

Mr. Lewis was so inspired that he decided Gold’s Gym Dr Phillips would also make a sizeable donation to D.A.D.S. to further help the cause. No one ever thought the popular Facebook contest would yield so much more than just the television for a charity auction. However, this incredible story does not end there.

Bill Konstand, President of TAG Business Strategies that manages the digital marketing for all Central Florida Gold's Gyms, and about 35 other Gold's Gym locations across the USA, decided that TAG would also make a matching donation for D.A.D.S. "Jarrod had all of our teams at Gold’s Gym Orlando and TAG so inspired. I am sure Jarrod's family would have loved that big television but he really put things into perspective for all of us". In the spring TAG plans to run a 'Check-in and Win a trip to Hawaii' contest which will include all Gold's Gyms under TAG Management and we plan to make a similar donation at the conclusion of that contest as well."
