At the end of July, we partnered with America’s favorite fitness and health expert Jillian Michaels. Michaels led a charity ride at a Flywheel studio, and all proceeds went directly toward the charity USA for UNHCR, whose mission is to protect and empower refugees with hope and opportunity. Her personal commitment to the organization included stepping 100 miles in July and fundraising alongside her supporters. She has asked Americans to show their solidarity with refugees by joining the challenge and by donating what they can to help provide critical aid to refugees worldwide.
“The global refugee crisis is far and away the largest humanitarian crisis of our time, and through this collective effort, we can show our solidarity, increase awareness about refugee issues, raise money to protect refugees, and help them to rebuild their lives,” said Michaels. “Meeting refugees has forever changed me. Inspired to do more, along with an amazing group of supporters from across the country, I walked 100 miles in July in solidarity with refugees to raise critical funds. But we can’t stop here. We can still #StepwithRefugees to transform all of our lives for the better and can donate to help refugees around the world find safety and security.”
Thank you to Jillian for partnering with Flywheel and helping make a difference in the lives of refugees world-wide! To learn more about USA for UNHCR or to donate to Jillian’s fundraising page, please click here: https://stepwithjillian.org/.
