Name: Donate to Second Harvest, get a free workout!
Date: November 1, 2021 - November 30, 2021
Donate and get a free pass!
Event Description:
Local entrepreneur Andy Gundlach is once again hoping to raise donations for Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin to help others in need this season. Thirty-one local Anytime Fitness of Southern Wisconsin locations as well as three Basecamp Fitness of Madison locations, all under Gundlach’s ownership, will be collecting donations this November. Anyone who donates will receive a free 30-day membership to Anytime Fitness or free 5-class pack to Basecamp Fitness.

Anytime Fitness has collected food for Second Harvest for the past eight years. This will be the first year Basecamp Fitness will also be collecting donations. Recognizing the significant increase in need for food and knowing the role proper nutrition and exercise play in keeping our community healthy, Gundlach hopes the free 30-day membership and 5-class pack will result in more donations and more people adding exercise to their daily routine.

“We know the importance of a consistent workout routine for building strong immune systems, fighting disease, and decreasing stress, which is more critical now than ever before,” says Gundlach. “That is why we wanted to thank those in our community for donating to our local food bank by offering these free passes.”

New this year, donations may be made in the form of non-perishable food items as well as monetary donations made virtually. Second Harvest states that virtual food drives allow them to serve more people, more efficiently. Each $10 donation can provide up to 25 meals for those struggling with hunger. When someone makes a monetary donation virtually, their email confirmation can be shown in exchange for the 30-day free membership at Anytime Fitness or 5-class pack at Basecamp Fitness.

In the past, donations made through Anytime Fitness of Southern Wisconsin to Second Harvest and local food banks collectively reached 3,000 pounds of non-perishable food each year on average. Gundlach states, “Helping others in need is good for your health, and my team is here to help members of our community feel their healthiest and happiest. We hope to top that amount this year by also having a virtual component to make donations even easier!”

Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin’s mission is to end hunger in southern Wisconsin. Since 1986 Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin has put more than 100 million meals on the tables of those who are facing hunger in southern Wisconsin. More information can be found on their website: https://www.secondharvestmadison.org/.

Non-perishable donations will be accepted at all 31 Anytime Fitness locations in Southern Wisconsin and three Basecamp Fitness Madison locations during the month of November.
