Weight Loss Challenge to Support PA Wounded Warriors
Here at Elek Plumbing, we’re always looking for new and impactful ways to support charitable organizations within our community. NO-Shave November was a big hit with a spirited beard-growing competition that resulted in hundreds of Likes on Facebook and more than $700 for the organization. We also recently wrapped a service van with a cancer awareness ribbon to keep the fight against the disease top of mind on the streets. Next up, Don will be putting himself out there with a personal weight loss challenge to support PA Wounded Warriors.
With the goal of shedding 30 pounds, Don will donate $50 to the charity for every pound lost for a potential donation of $1500! To tackle the challenge, Don will be working out at Full Circle Training in Bethlehem under the guidance of Obe Roundtree, the gym’s owner. Elek has been a longtime supporter of PA Wounded Warriors, which provides assistance to returning veterans and their families. We invite you to show your support for the organization and Don’s noble mission – ever little bit helps, even $1 per pound. Pledge forms and donation instructions can be found at elekplumbing.com/paww/. Once Don completes his goal he hopes to pass the torch to a fellow Elek employee or even a customer! Stay tuned for updates on Don’s progress and to learn who is next. For more information on Full Circle Training, visit www.myfullcircletraining.com
