This fall, Evolution Health & Fitness, in Fernie, BC, began to switch the focus of their annual charitable donations to more local organizations including the Fernie Trails Alliance (FTA).

Scott Cownden, owner of Evolution Health and Fitness says he is consistently amazed by the incredible work and dedication of the FTA:  “I enjoy mountain biking, hiking/running, and snowshoeing all our local trails and have seen an immense improvement in maintenance and trail structure since I arrived in Fernie in 2001.  I wanted to contribute to the FTA beyond simply drawing up a random cheque or joining as a corporate membership.  We came up with a way that would involve our members and clients, and put a fun ‘SPIN’ on our charitable contribution; for every spin participant Evolution sees, we donate 20 cents to the FTA.”

Last season Evolution saw 3675 participants in their SPIN classes generating $735 for the FTA!   “Our members are active, outdoor enthusiasts…I run into them on the trails everyday!  This donation program is way to make our generosity interactive, so our members feel even better about attending a class at evolution!  Just through September, evolution has already received nearly 200 SPIN participants, so we are hoping to contribute more this season!”
