I am still in awe from last Tuesday, October 16th, 2018. It was MJ Fit’s grand opening, and it is a day I will never forget! SO many people came out to support me and my mission (and eat the delicious Chick-Fil-A of course); it was overwhelming and eye-opening to see how many lives I have already affected, and how many friends and peers I have made in my brief 2 years here in Denver.
I signed up with the South Metro Chamber of Commerce 2 months ago after hearing they are the ones who put on ribbon cuttings. Sure enough, we planned it 2 months ago for this past week, and they organized everything. There were several people from the city and the chamber who showed up, including the mayor! Of course, I brought the majority of the guests, but there is no way my event would have been nearly as successful as it was without the help of the amazing organizers.
I also had a raffle full of goodies from local businesses. There were tickets given for: attending my ribbon cutting, signing up for a group exercise class, checking in on Facebook or Instagram (or both), leaving a review on Facebook, Yelp or Google (preferably a positive one!), signing up for a complimentary consultation for personal training, signing up for my newsletter, and BURPEES!
My donations included $75 from Critter Wagon, facial and brow henna from Brandy Rich, massage from Infinity Massage by Jessica, Vital Proteins, free consultation from Concise Chiropractic, Amazon gift card from Chris at American Family Insurance, photo session and print from Through Your Eyes Photography, 3 nutrition sessions from Everyday Nutrition, $25 to Wild Blue Boutique, and a health supplement goodie back from Hollis–your wellness broker. A huge THANK YOU to all the people who were kind enough to donate!
Here are some pictures from the big day!
