Training For Warriors raised $94,000 in an effort to give back to a fitness coach and a mother who is battling cancer. Rollga furthered the effort of the organization by hosting a Restoration of Movement Clinic at TFW DuPage on July 27th. Rollga raised an additional $1000 that evening, to which they donated 100% of the sales of Rollgas in an effort to help the organization continue to push toward $100,000.
For any family, the battle of cancer is a challenge both mentally and financially. The stress of cancer is real. This is what drove Training For Warriors Founder, Martin Rooney and his family, on a mission to find a way to give back to his fellow warrior. “Cancer has been a deep thread…” Rooney shares with passion to his organization, “Last year when I caught wind of Alicia’s story, I stood on a stage and I said we were going to do something about it.” Rooney went on to make a promise to the TFW Network that they would secretly host events to raise funds throughout the year without Alicia knowing. At the Training For Warriors Summit in Buffalo, NY, Rooney surprised Alicia’s family with the $90,000 donation in the form of a scholarship fund set up for her four daughters.
Rollga’s Co-Owner, Tim Schmidt, was among one of the 150 in the room the night of Rooney’s surprise reveal. “I immediately was drawn into this story,” expressed Schmidt, “I lost sleep over it. Rollga had to find a way to contribute to Alicia’s family.” Rollga was invited to teach a course on movement using the Rollga Foam Roller two weeks later at TFW DuPage. “These Movement Clinic’s tend to draw a crowd,” said Rollga’s Founder Taggart Downare, “This was the perfect opportunity for Rollga to give.” Rollga was able to donate an additional $1,000 that evening through the sales of the Rollga Foam Roller, a functional training self-massage roller. “These past few weeks have been like living a dream.” expressed Alicia Saldivar after catching word of Rollga’s donation, “Thank you for giving my girls the greatest gift..a future.”
