The donations are part of Planet Fitness’ Judgement Free Generation initiative to prevent bullying of teens. When people apply for memberships, 100 per cent of their enrolment fee will be donated, helping fund programming, training and resources in support of the initiative’s mission.
“Making people feel accepted and respected is something we have always proudly stood behind,” says Chris Rondeau, CEO of Planet Fitness. “With bullying occurring once every 25 minutes in classrooms, we are approaching an epidemic, which is why we have joined this movement to take a stand against it and focus on promoting kindness and inclusion. This is just one of the many ways we are going to continue to support this cause.”
Planet Fitness has 12 locations in Ontario.
