It’s All For The Kids


By Megan Shippam,

Make an impact and be a part of something big. On Saturday, May 21st, you could help a child reach his or her full potential while working on your own health and fitness at the same time! It’s a win-win for everyone.

On Saturday, May 21st, my favorite gym, Elite Fitness and Performance in East Sac, is hosting another Boot Camp with a Purpose – benefiting Big Brothers and Big Sisters of the Greater Sacramento Area.

Have you wanted to see what “Crossfit” workouts are all about?  Well now’s your chance! I’ve been going to EFP for months now and am totally addicted J. This is a great chance for you to give back to the community and get some exercise yourself.

Big Brothers Big Sisters has been the catalyst for creating genuine relationships that have a direct and lasting impact on the lives of young people. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Sacramento serves children, ages 8 through 14, in Sacramento, Yolo, Placer, San Joaquin, Yuba and Sutter.

National research has shown that positive relationships between youth and their Big Brothers and Big Sisters make a world of difference in young lives. Through this organization, more kids are getting off drugs & alcohol, are less likely to skip school, and are more prone to a positive and happy adult life.
