Philanthropy at ZŪM Fitness

I’ll never forget meeting “Momma Love” on a spin bike in Westlake Park. It was September 30th, 2017 and I was instructing an outdoor spin class at rush hour in the public park. Why?

Honestly, a letter just doesn’t seem to do justice to each of you, as individuals and a group, in the profound impact you have all had…
