Wilcox Wellness & Fitness is so proud to announce our partnership with Sarah’s House in Maine. We have pledged to raise $5,000 annually for this incredible organizations through our new Check-Ins for Charity Campaign.
Sarah’s House has overwhelming support from the community at Wilcox Wellness & Fitness and we are incredibly excited to be supporting this incredible organization.
Sarah’s House provides a ‘comfortable home away from home’ for cancer patients and their caregivers while they are receiving cancer treatments in the Bangor area. Sarah’s House serves people in Maine who need to travel more than 30 miles to receive their medical treatments.
At Sarah’s House, patients and caregivers tap into a wonderful support community and are able to connect with others who are fighting the same fight with cancer.
I first learned about Sarah’s House through a Rotary presentation about a year ago. Being from a remote community in Maine, I was very moved by the amazing work that they do to support people who are traveling to receive medical treatments.
I didn’t know Sarah personally but I do know that she was about my age when she was diagnosed with cancer and her daughter was about the same age as my son. I was very moved by her story and her ability to go through the most difficult time of her life and still fight to help ease the burden for others.
The past few weeks we have been meeting with the organizers and board members of Sarah’s House. We are even more excited to get behind their mission, give back, and do more good.
If you have a few minutes today and want to learn more about Sarah's House- take some time to watch this video. (get the tissues ready)
Here is how our check-in for charity program works – every time a client checks in to Wilcox Wellness & Fitness on Facebook we will provide a donation to Sarah’s House. We will tally up all the check-ins on a monthly basis and cut a check directly to Sarah’s House.
We are so excited to be working on this new initiative to support Sarah’s House!
You Check-In. We Give Back. Together We Do More Good.
