InnerCity Weightlifting Info Breakfast: Learn More About Supporting this Organization while Staying Fit.
Please join us to learn more about an amazing social venture: InnerCity Weightlifting. We are hosting a breakfast on December 4, 2013 at our campus to introduce this incredible group and hope that you will join us.
InnerCity Weightlifting’s mission is “to reduce violence and promote professional, personal and academic achievement among urban youth. They work with young people at the highest risk for violence in order to reduce youth violence by getting their students off the streets and into the gym, where they are empowered with the confidence and positive support needed to say no to violence and yes to opportunity.”
Through Microsoft’s partnership with Root Cause, we became connected with Jon Feinman and InnerCity Weightlifting about 18 months ago. InnerCity Weightlifting has become a great partner to Microsoft. Microsoft hosts personal training at Microsoft twice each week. Employees receive high quality personal training at a group rate. At the same time, ICW trainers have an opportunity to visit our office in Kendall Square, make connections in the business community and spend time outside of their neighborhood. We have discovered that weightlifting is for everyone – the Microsoft employees who participate range from beginners to experienced athletes and ICW is able to customize the workouts for each person’s needs.
ICW is hoping to grow their corporate partnerships and we are hosting this breakfast to solicit your input as to how they can engage more companies in the Boston area. Please join us:
