How it all started
I told them,” I’ll be back with a couple of friends on Saturday and I will put on a full exercise class, right there in front of their houses in the street, tell your friends maybe they will join us.” I got on the phone to a friend of mine at Whole Foods, they donated apples and water bottles, Amazon sent me exercise mats and towels.
We went back on Saturday, the trash was picked up and they were waiting for us. We blasted music from my rental car and I led a group of about 80 people in an exercise class while their kids rode bikes around us. It was beautiful.
I dreamed of doing this in every city, bringing the joy of exercise to impoverished neighborhoods.
I filled out 10 grant requests, didn’t raise one dollar.
