RockBox Fitness Continues Efforts Benefiting National Charity Partner
Leading boxing and boutique fitness franchise raises money and awareness for nonprofit partner
June 16, 2022 // Franchising.com // Huntersville, N.C. - RockBox Fitness, one of the nation’s fastest-growing boutique fitness franchises and a leader in the boxing and functional fitness space, is capitalizing on its recent success to benefit a cause close to its heart - mental health.
As part of its partnership with nonprofit organization To Write Love on Her Arms (TWLOHA), RockBox undertook a fundraising effort to benefit TWLOHA’s dedication to helping those struggling with grief, depression, addiction, and thoughts of suicide. Throughout April’s “Month of Hope,” RockBox studios across the country took part in various campaigns to boost fundraising and awareness for the cause.
“The impact (of these efforts) is huge,” said Leslie Zimmerman, co-owner of the RockBox studio in Lafayette, LA which organized and hosted a golf tournament with local sponsors. “The partnership allows an open door for members or anyone to seek the help they need. It’s tough for some people to ask for help, and TWLOHA opens that door.”
Beyond the fundraising efforts resulting in more than $12,000 in one month towards RockBox Fitness’s overall 2022 goals, owners said the motivations and efforts went beyond financial benefits. In addition to social media efforts, merchandise sales, and organizing events, RockBox studios added a personal touch as well.
“Every day during the Month of Hope, staff shared stories at the end of class about themselves or people in their lives who suffer from mental health challenges, and encouraged members to do the same,” said John Rouse, co-owner of the Flower Mound and Frisco studios in Texas. “That could be parlayed into sharing what TWLOHA does and how members can help people who may not have the resources to get this help on their own.”
RockBox Fitness announced its charity partnership with To Write Love on Her Arms at its annual Summit in October 2021. As the boxing franchise expands rapidly throughout the United States, each studio will continue to work towards this charitable effort as part of its national commitment to TWLOHA.
