You Are The Reason

One year ago today, our doors were closed.

There was no workout on the whiteboard. The PR bell was silent. No music blared from the speakers. No coach paced through a hard-working class with an eye on movement and sharing words of encouragement. The parking lot was empty and no sun was shining through the bay doors.

Initially, for myself, things seemed a bit dire. There were questions about what to do and whether TCF would survive.

Like many, I would underestimate the eventual impact of the coronavirus, but I also grossly underestimated the strength and kindness of the members of the community.

It wasn’t long before TCF’s equipment was relocated to your homes, we began to organize around the ‘new normal’ and the community rallied around each other.

We can say thank you a thousand times and it will never be enough. During a year with unforeseen and unfathomable challenges, you showed bottomless grit and countless acts of kindness.

So, yet again, we’ll say thank you, but not for the last time as we’re forever grateful.

You are the reason we’re still here.
