Event raises $16k

Chalk up another success for Innovative Fitness’ Train the Trainer event.

The South Surrey gym’s annual fundraiser, in which clients pledge money to put their personal trainers through grueling and often embarrassing workouts, was held Friday, Dec. 9 and raised more than $16,000 for local charities.

This year, funds raised will go to support the White Rock South Surrey Community Foundation and the Peace Arch Hospital Foundation.

“It is an event that was developed as a fun and entertaining way for our training coaches to raise money for charitable organizations,” Curtis Christopherson, owner of Innovative Fitness White Rock, said in a release.

“However, it is not just the selfless acts of our teammates that make this event possible, it is also from the overwhelming support of our loyal and contributing customers that come out to support the initiative.”
