Leisure Sports announced today that its family of fitness clubs, ClubSport, Renaissance ClubSport, and The Studio, raised a grand total of $22,354 in benefit of the Navy SEAL Foundation, exceeding last year’s fundraising efforts by over $2,000. Navy SEAL Foundation ambassador Mark Kendall graciously accepted the funds on behalf of the organization.

"Leisure Sports and its club members have once again shown heartfelt support for the men, women, and families of Naval Special Warfare,” said Kendall. “The Navy SEAL Foundation is honored to be selected for this program and we are proud that so many of [the ClubSport, Renaissance ClubSport, and The Studio] members will work out wearing the t-shirts that show their patriotism and support for the Navy SEAL Foundation."

Each year, Leisure Sports selects a charitable organization to support and hosts a variety of activities to raise funds. This is the second consecutive year that Leisure Sports selected the Navy SEAL Foundation as their charity of choice. Fundraising efforts were boosted by the ClubSport Pleasanton community, which raised over $14,000 through the sale of Navy SEAL-inspired t-shirts and a sports memorabilia silent auction.

"Over the last two years, Leisure Sports has contributed more than $40,000 to the Navy SEAL Foundation,” said Brianna Thornton, Leisure Sports Programming Director. “We are very proud to contribute to such a noble organization that supports the men and women who have served our country, as well as their families."

The Navy SEAL Foundation is a 501c3 national non-profit charitable organization committed to America’s most elite warriors, supporting U.S. Navy SEALs, their community, and families by empowering and assisting them through challenges and triumphs. The foundation provides over 30 tailored programs specifically designed to meet the unique needs of Naval Special Warfare (NSW) warriors, veterans, families, and families of the fallen. Since the September 11 terrorist attacks, there has been an unprecedented demand for Special Operations Forces around the globe. SEALs spend up to 270 days away from home each year in the most unforgiving environments and train at an unrelenting pace in order to maintain their ability to execute our nation’s toughest military missions. Their commitment to our country and the mission is only possible because of the significant personal sacrifices made by them and their families. We believe that they should not face these challenges alone.
