HFCND is new to campus for the 2016-17 school year and our main goal is to foster a healthy campus community for all, while providing a platform for those interested in health and fitness to meet, communicate and engage in activities that promote healthy lifestyles. Within our first year, we gained 161 undergraduate members and our numbers are still climbing but we are in need of your support to continue to expand club activities. Every dollar contributed directly funds the conversion of our ideas into realities and helps to write the story of the Health and Fitness Club. We appreciate your interest in our club and should you choose to contribute to our campaign, please consider providing your information so we can thank you personally.

Donations to the Health and Fitness Club of Notre Dame fund our current and prospective club activities. Some of these specific areas include fresh food for healthy cooking nights, fitness instructors for group workout classes and speakers or professionals for educating members on topics such as goal-setting, training and nutrition. Because the Health and Fitness Club is still an emergent club on campus, each and every donation contributes to creating the tradition of the club and supporting the health and fitness of students at the University. We have so many creative ideas that are in the works and your generosity puts us one step closer to making these ideas a reality. Some of these include- A week-long health boot camp program that addresses all dimensions of student health. This will include workout classes that highlight different forms of exercise- HIIT, yoga, lifting, etc.; nutrition programs that encourage healthy eating in college and navigating the dining halls; Social events to get students in touch with others who share similar interests; and guest speakers to guide discussions on topics such as mental health, training, motivation and positivity. Travel to state parks or other sites that provide students the opportunity to get off campus and explore beautiful locations while partaking in activities such as hiking, kayaking, swimming, running, etc.
Because the Health and Fitness Club is still an infant compared to the other student organizations established on campus, we are still in the developmental process. This means that we are constantly sorting through new ideas to be as resourceful to students as possible and our largest restraint is financially feasibility. This being said, each donation contributes directly to writing the story of the Health and Fitness Club of Notre Dame. We appreciate your interest in our club and your generosity in donating to our campaign- it truly makes an impact!
