On Sunday, Nov 24th, we were able to host the second Migrant Health Fair, in partnership with @watari_outreach. This would not have been possible without the amazing outpour of support from our community. When we first reached out to Watari, we had only been open for a few weeks. This time around, our community has grown exponentially and as such, was able to offer so much more to our participating migrants this second time. I am beyond touched to be able to give back in a meaningful way with the support of the community we’ve fostered together at the gym. When I decided to open the gym, it’s always been my core motivation to have a place that strived to do more than run as a business. I am so proud and inspired by the work we’ve been able to do so far with our community. All of this means so much to me. I would not be able to do that without all of you. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
