As Salem Social Village grows in its role of helping the development of other non-profits, charities and NGOs in the city, we make lots of friends. One of our partners, who are also working to inspire young people towards greater things, is ’13th Legion’. It’s an unusual name, but they are a bunch of guys who love working out, and inspiring others to also take care of their physical health – creating friendships and fun along the way.
They’ve now opened up a professional gym in the city, and as a thank you for some of the things we’ve been able to help them with, they offered us 20 free passes for our staff and volunteers to use their gym every week – nice! As they say round here, ‘In a healthy body there’s a healthy spirit!’
