Giving Back

We are raising the bar to live our best life and raising the bar to help others do the same. We are very proud to have raised and donated more than $36,000 to local charities through fundraisers and special programs since 2012! In August 2017, we kicked our giving up a notch with these new programs:

Uplift Charity Program

Dragonfly Fitness is pledging to donate $1 per person per class every month to a different charity through the Uplift Charity Program. The charities will not only receive a financial contribution, but will also be featured on our website, social media and in our studio. Members will be encouraged to use designated hashtags, including #DFTRaisingThe Bar and #IWorkOutDragonflyGivesBack, to support the initiative and the charity on social media.
