WE WILL GIVE (one of) YOU $5000 FOR SHARING YOUR PERSONAL FITNESS STORY
It’s true. We have $5000 USD to give to one hard-working and dedicated future – or current! - fitness leader.
It could be you! And all we want in return is a story.
Yup, $5000 for 500 words. That’s $10 a word! That’s more than any writer I know makes!
How do I submit my story?!
This year, we are launching our first ever Synergee Scholarship. We are ECSTATIC to award one post-secondary student who is passionate about fitness with a $5000 USD reward. Any post-secondary student in Canada or the US is eligible!
This doesn’t mean you need to be entering or enrolled in a kinesiology program; it doesn’t even mean you want to be a fitness instructor when you grow up; we will be giving this awesome award to whoever has the most inspiring fitness journey that demonstrates the values Synergee holds near and dear.
Fitness is about unlocking your true potential, whether you are on your own, working out with friends and family, or pushing forward as a team. It’s about becoming stronger, fitter, faster, and happier – because is there anything more satisfying than defying your “I CAN’T”-s until they become “I CAN!!!”-s?!
Your fitness journey may have started with:
- joining a sports team and then becoming team captain;
- volunteering at a summer camp and teaching kids to paddle;
- attending your first basketball game and then deciding then and there you would dedicate your life to finding out the best recovery methods for professional athletes;
- or maybe your childhood friend gave you a pair of running shoes and you laced em up and one day just decided to run and you ran all the way to the end of the continent and then turned around and ran to the other side and inspired people across the country and set off a series of pop culture phenomena in the process, and this was years after representing your country at the international ping-pong competition…
Yes, that last one is one of the subplots of Forest Gump, but the point is IT IS A GREAT STORY! They all are!
And we LOVE great stories, bit and small! All of them will be considered as we choose who to give this award to.
All you need to do is get your story in by August 30th – as well as a few other bits, like 2 reference letters, eligibility form, and post an “I applied!”-style status on Social Media – and you will be in the running to be the first Synergee Scholar!
How incredible is that?! All the info you need is here. Don't delay - apply!!
What's Synergee's motive...?
Our motive is philanthropic; we want to ease the financial burden that school places on many student's shoulders so they can enjoy the fruits of their labor more fully and lead a healthy life - mentally and physically - while studying.
$5000 USD is a lot of money to give away. But we don’t see it as giving money away; we see as giving back to the fitness community and investing in a future fitness leader’s success.
We are only as strong as our community is, and strength comes from more than lifting weights and running sprints. Fitness is an important determinant of health, but having a post-secondary education is a social determinant that has huge impacts on ones longevity, too!
And yet, school is expensive and out of reach for many because of its cost. Moreover, even after paying tuition, maintaining a budget that allows you to eat well and work out regularly along with your studies is a struggle. We totally understand that, and we want to help.
While we don’t have a hand in lowering tuition fees, we can help one Athlete from Canada or the US with $5000 USD. Our ultimate goal is to help people lead healthier, fitter, happier lives; so it is a no brainer that we’d put out a scholarship, right?
And it's a no brainer that you should apply! :)
