We had voters chime in from over ¾ of the states in the US, and several more from countries like Canada, Germany, Norway, Israel, Kuwait, Ireland, the United Kingdom, Nigeria, Malaysia, Korea, Colombia, the United Arab Emirates, and Spain. Ah, the power of the Social media!
The Get Busy Living Performer of the Week contest far exceeded our expectations, and all of the credit goes to those communities who wanted to give their athletes just a little recognition. For 24 weeks, since last August when we started this campaign, we have witnessed school and community pride explode every week as that competitive spirit shone through and through. Each week we got to deliver a check for $100 for a school’s PE Department, just a drop in the bucket, but so appreciated by every door we walked through. A total of $2600 was donated by Champion to a dozen different schools throughout central Illinois.
We at Champion Fitness Physical Therapy have had fun with this contest, and we hope you have, too. Be looking for us again in the fall. Can’t wait to get started!
