Every third Saturday of the month Top Level Fitness is hosting a Workout for a Cause were we invite our clients and the local community to come for a great workout and support a good cause with a small donation. This week we’re supporting Mutual Ground and their Mission “To provide a safety net of services for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault while on their journeys toward becoming survivors”.
Mutual Ground is an agency in Aurora that works with victims of domestic violence and sexual assault as well as with their families. Founded in 1975, Mutual Ground has the goal of providing programs that focus on Safety, Healing and Prevention. All services are victim-centered and focus on advocacy that empowers each individual to make her/his own decisions.
I was first introduced to Mutual Ground by Tomoth Sylvia, pastor at Hope United Church of Christ, our neighbor and client at Top Level Fitness. As a church they have partnered with Mutual Ground on several occasions. They have organized collections for Mutual Ground of various, much-needed items. In addition, they have volunteered at their Aurora site, “adopting” a room, cleaning the grounds and working to organize their donations.
Many of our lives have been touched by domestic violence, if not our own then the lives of our friends and/or family.
Mutual Ground continues to do amazing work for men, women and children in need in our community. I am so excited to tell others about their important work and to hopefully encourage others to get involved as well.
The process is very simple; just come in for our Workout for a Cause this Saturday July 20th at 9 am, bring as many friends as you can with you and be ready to burn some calories. The workout it’s open to ANYONE, clients, non-clients, friends and family members.
To attend the Saturday workout, for all paying clients it is voluntary donation in whatever amount you choose and if you choose so, for all non-clients we ask for $5-$10 (or whatever heart gives you).
Currently, Mutual Ground is in need of some very specific donations. Any of the items below can be donated as well. They are looking for:
- New Women’s Undergarments
- New Children’s Undergarments
- New Children’s Socks
- Facial Soap
- Face Lotion
For every friend (non-member) you bring, Top Level Fitness will add additional donation of $5.
Their website is: www.mutualground.org

If there are more people that we can fit in one session we will open another session at 8am.
Thank you and I hope to see many of you this Saturday July 20th, 9 am at Top Level Fitness.
