HESPERIA – Assemblyman Jay Obernolte (R-Hesperia) honored 7K CrossFit in Big Bear Lake as Outstanding Small Business of the Month.
7K CrossFit was started by two Big Bear Valley residents, Pat Burton and Andy Meadors, who are avid CrossFit certified coaches and athletes. Their partnership began with a vision to provide a fitness center for their community that offers a proven, fun, and results-measured program that is also one of the fastest growing fitness trends in the country. The 7K CrossFit name was conceived from the unique fact of operating a fitness center in 7,000’ elevation (“7K”). Many professional athletes are looking to train at higher altitudes for its superior conditioning.
7K CrossFit continuously raises money for local charities. Their most recent fundraiser, 7K for 7 Stars, benefits the Seven Stars Foundation, an organization that provides scholarships for the children of military service members to attend YMCA camps across the nation. Their goal is to provide financial, emotional, and educational assistance for military families as a small token of thanks for their sacrifice.
“This amazing organization raises money to send the children of our military men and women to summer camp,” Assemblyman Obernolte said. “This year they funded scholarships for nearly 300 kids – what an extraordinary success! I was honored to join them at their 7K of 7 Stars event earlier this month. 7K CrossFit not only provides a great workout, but they also support a great cause. It is a pleasure to recognize 7K CrossFit as my Small Business of the Month.”
