Valparaiso Fit Body Boot Camp to Host Grand Opening with Mission of Raising Funds for Local Charity, The Caring Place

I work with a company called Fit Body Boot Camp, and we are opening a new franchise in Valparaiso, Indiana. Owner Michele Stalion will be hosting a Grand Opening at her location, Valparaiso FBBC, on December 16th, 2017 at 902 Calumet Ave #3, Valparaiso, IN, 46383 from 11 am – 3 pm.

Michele will be holding a fundraiser in support of The Caring Place, a local non-profit organization dedicated to providing support for domestic and sexual assault victims in Indiana and across the country. The Caring Place offers services such as community education, support groups, legal counseling, and independent living planning.

To show her commitment to helping those in need, Michele will be accepting a minimum $25 cash donation or gift card from Kmart, Walmart, Target, or any other retail/restaurant on the bus route. Those who donate are entered in a raffle for the chance to win a 6-month free membership to the Valparaiso FBBC!

Plenty of festivities are expected to be at the event, including the attendance of local vendors to join in on the fun. These vendors include Plexus Worldwide, Pampered Chef, Mary Kay, Roots Organic Café, and more!

Michele pursued the path of FBBC because of her love for health, fitness, and helping others to live happy lives. Her involvement in the Caring Place holds a special place in her heart, which is why she wanted to bring its amazing cause to the forefront of her Grand Opening.

“I volunteered in the children's program when I was in high school. I continued to contribute to them through United Way. Having left my retail job, I wanted to do a fundraising effort for The Caring Place. This organization is trying to raise money for a new shelter and the clients are in continuous need of food, clothing, and other miscellaneous products while staying at the shelter.”

A few key stats—Fit Body Boot Camp:

  • is the world’s fastest growing fitness chain, and was recently named twice to Inc. 5000’s list of fastest growing businesses.
  • has over 550 locations across three different continents
  • promotes a healthy lifestyle and quality fitness through 30-minute boot camp sessions. These sessions produce Afterburn—your body continues to burn calories even after you leave boot camp.
  • is on a mission to help 20% of the population engage in a healthy and fit lifestyle by the year 2020.
