PRx Performance & CrossFit 701's Giving Hearts Food Drive

February 05, 2024 2 min read

In December, PRx Performance and CrossFit 701 started lifting a different kind of weight... a collaboration beyond our usual routines. Together, we initiated a dedicated food drive aligned with Giving Hearts Day.

Giving Hearts Day

Giving Hearts Day isn't just a date on the calendar; it symbolizes a collective effort to uplift communities, motivate generosity, and unite people for a common cause. Held annually in February, it serves as a moment for organizations and individuals to make a meaningful impact on the lives of others in their community.

The Giving Hearts Commitment

Proudly dedicated as a Giving Hearts Business, PRx Performance is committed to not only promoting Giving Hearts Day but also actively engaging in actions that embody its spirit. It's more than a commitment—it's a promise to create positive change.

PRx Performance's involvement in Giving Hearts Day extends beyond our workspace. We actively promote this day of generosity, urging others to join us in the movement. What’s more, we encourage volunteerism both as a business and as individuals, dedicating time and effort to causes within our community.

It’s Not About How Much We Lift...

The food drive collaboration between PRx Performance and CrossFit 701 was aimed at not just collecting goods but also making a friendly competition. Our goal was straightforward: gather as much food as possible to aid those in need while generating friendship and a shared purpose.

Both PRx Performance and CrossFit 701 introduced unique motivators to encourage active participation. The group with the lower donated weight faced a penalty: a staggering 3000 sit-ups for each member throughout January. The sheer number of sit-ups added a fun yet challenging piece to the competition. This incentive not only spurred engagement but also highlighted the other goals of each group—improving health and fitness!

So, Who Won?

The joint effort of PRx Performance and CrossFit 701 ended in tangible results. Both teams poured our energies into collecting and contributing donations, and the weight totals speak to that:

PRx Performance Weight Total: 166 lbs

CrossFit 701 Weight Total: 100 lbs

Combined Weight Total: 266 lbs


...It’s About How We Lift Each Other Up

While the weight totals show physical impact, the ripple effect of this joint initiative extends far beyond numbers. It holds the spirit of community, unity, and the influence that collective goodwill can give.

The December collaboration between PRx Performance and CrossFit 701 for the Giving Hearts Day food drive isn't just a momentary effort—it's a demonstration of the enduring impact that emerges when individuals and businesses unite for a greater cause. Our joint efforts serve as a reminder: it's not just about what we lift, but also about how we lift each other up.

The spirit of giving isn't confined to a single day—it's a commitment to making a difference, one heart, and one act of kindness at a time.
