During the month of May, BTB Advertiser Highline Athletic Club  is promoting fitness and community, and as we do with all our Advertisers, here’s some info they want us to share with our Readers:
HIGHLINE ATHLETIC CLUB PROMOTES FITNESS AND COMMUNITY
The staff members of Highline Athletic Club have discovered a new way to do business thatâ€™s proving to be a triple winner for communities around the country.
They are part of The HealthClub Fundraiser network, which puts a sample health club membership within reach of just about everybody, raises money for community organizations and brings new members to the local club.
â€œItâ€™s a win-win-win,â€ said Dona Forrester, General Manager. â€œWeâ€™re so pleased to spread the fitness message and help our local organizations raise money at the same time, and there is no money required to get started!â€
Hereâ€™s how The HealthClub Fundraiser works: Local fund-raising organizations log on to the HealthClub Fundraiser website at www.healthclubfundraiser.com  and complete an online form to get started. The HealthClub Fundraiser provides all the tools and resources the groups need, including marketing materials, order forms at no charge. Once the sale is over, the fundraising organization picks up their passes at the local participating club.
Instead of holding bake sales and chocolate bar drives, group members sell 2-month passes to Highline Athletic Club for only $20. The group keeps $10 for each pass sold. The average fund-raising group sells 100 to 150 passes, but some have sold as many as 500 in a single fund-raising drive. Fund-raisers with groups from parent-teacher organizations to school bands to church groups and charities say the passes are easy to sell because of the high awareness of the value of exercise and family fun. And thereâ€™s no minimum order of passes and no limit to the amount of money a group can raise.
Health Clubs will support one to two fundraisers per month. The fund-raising partners include church groups, school groups and other various charities.
â€œThis is a whole new way of doing business for us,â€ said Dona Forrester, General Manager. â€œIt stands to benefit so many people in Burien, Normandy Park, Des Moines and Tukwila and improve the fitness of our community, too.â€
The HealthClub Fundraiser is a subsidiary of the Northwest Athletic groups which includes the PEAK Health and Wellness Centers in Montana and Idaho, the Montana Athletic Club – Bigfork, The Wave Aquatics and Fitness Center and the Harbor Square Athletic Club.
