We are incredibly excited to share that we have been invited by OUTAthletics to host a special workout titled #InfiltrateWithLove on June 17th at 9am. This workout fundraiser is more than just a regular fitness class—it’s a stand against hate, a cry for justice, and a fundraiser for a cause very close to our hearts.
In this current year, we’ve seen an unprecedented number of anti-LGBTQ+ legislation proposals. It’s a time that demands our unity, our strength, and our compassion.
We are proud to announce that our very own Coach Justin, a cherished member of the LGBTQ+ community, will be leading our team “NHF Rainbow Reps” in the workout. The session is designed to not only build physical strength but also foster resilience, unity, and awareness about the ongoing issues faced by the LGBTQ+ community.
We’re inviting up to 20 participants to join us at the gym for this impactful event. The suggested donation to participate is $100, and all proceeds will go directly to OUTAthletics in their fight against discriminatory legislation. Our goal is to raise $2,000 to support their critical work.
We understand that not everyone may be in a position to donate financially—and that’s okay. You are still welcome to workout because support comes in many forms! You can help immensely by sharing the donation link on your social media platforms or by donating an item to our silent auction which will take place during the event.
Fundraiser Ideas for Silent Auction
Here are some popular silent auction items you can consider donating to our event. Or feel free to come up with your own.
- Gift Certificates: These can be for local restaurants, spas, hair salons, or even online stores. They’re always a big hit at a fundraiser!
- Artwork: If you’re an artist or you know one who’s willing to donate, art pieces are highly sought after in auctions.
- Sports Memorabilia: Signed merchandise, tickets to a game, or other related items are always a crowd-pleaser.
- Experiences: Think cooking classes, wine tasting, hot air balloon rides, or a day at a local attraction. Experiences can often command high bids at a fundraiser.
- Fitness Packages: As we’re a health and fitness community, fitness-related items such as personal training sessions, yoga classes, or sports equipment would be well-received.
- Handcrafted Items: If you’re skilled in a craft, consider donating a handmade item. This could be jewelry, pottery, knitted items, or anything else you create.
- Professional Services: If you’re a professional in a certain field, consider offering your services. This could be photography sessions, personal styling, home cleaning, or even landscaping.
- Electronics: Items like headphones, smart speakers, or fitness trackers could attract bidders.
- Travel and Accommodation Packages: If you have contacts in the hospitality industry, a weekend getaway or a stay at a luxury hotel would be a fantastic auction item.
- Gourmet Baskets: High-quality food and drink items, like a selection of fine wines, gourmet coffee, or a basket of local organic produce, can be very appealing.
Please contact us if you are able to donate any of these items to the #infiltratewithlove event.
We are nothing without our community. We believe in the power of love, acceptance, and diversity, and we know our community does too. This is our chance to disrupt hate, infiltrate with love, and make a real difference.
Thank you for standing with us, and for being a part of this incredible journey to change. We can’t wait to see you on June 17th for a workout filled with love, strength, and unity.
Your NHF #fitfam
