Snap Fitness raises $66,000 to support mental health initiatives
November 24, 2020

Snap Fitness Australia has advised that on 23rd November they exchanged a cheque of $66,708 with Gold Coast-based mental health charity LIVIN after raising the vital funds through their Mental Health Month support initiative running through October and November.

The partnership saw the gym franchise draw awareness towards mental health in Australia, while encouraging locals to implement an all-encompassing approach to health.

Snap Fitness hosted a range of activities including a virtual meditation session, free ‘move for mental health’ training week, and a 28-Day Challenge with $5 from every registration going directly to LIVIN, as well as individual club fundraising. The partnership saw locals get their mind and body healthy in what has been a challenging year for many.

Snap Fitness Australia partnered with LIVIN to raise vital funds and awareness to support LIVIN’s cutting edge education programs, apparel and community awareness initiatives, promoting the organisation’s mantra ‘It Ain’t Weak to Speak’.

Snap Fitness clubs rallied their communities throughout October to support the cause through positive mental and physical health challenges, setting the ambitious goal of raising more than $50,000 nationwide for the cause.

Snap Fitness Chief Executive, Chris Caldwell advised “at Snap Fitness our goal has always been to have an all-encompassing approach to health and wellness – we know the strong links between physical and mental health.

“The existing mental health issues our society is suffering has been heightened this year with the global pandemic, so it’s never been more important for the entire country to get behind this cause and do something to create positive change in their communities.”

LIVIN Founder, Casey Lyons, said the partnership was intended to give Australians a timely reminder to focus on their overall health and wellbeing, both physical and mental.

Lyons added “2020 has been a challenging year for everyone, taking a serious toll on those who suffer from mental health issues or even those who may be experiencing these issues for the first time.
