I am sending this message with a very heavy heart. One of our Training Studio family members is going through an unbelievably difficult time, coping with the devastating loss of her 21 year old son. My dear friend and training partner, Melanie Vittitow, unexpectedly lost her son, Greg, Saturday afternoon.
Melanie has been a very important part of The Training Studio for several years as a run group mentor, outstanding Ironman athlete and a genuine, fun person to be around. Her passion for helping others is second to none and it’s apparent that the desire to give back to Mel is now. We’ve received an overwhelming number of requests to help with meals or with any other need, and as you may imagine, identifying a way to help for each of you isn’t possible. Like you, we want your assistance to create the most value so we’ve set up a fund where 100% of your donation will go to the Vittitow family during this time of need. It may be an anonymous gift, if preferred, or your name and amount may also be tracked and passed along to the Vittitow’s.
We all know the importance of good nutrition, so we are going to allocate the necessary amount from the fund to hire a local chef to prepare vegan dinners for the family. With your support, Mel and Dave will not have to focus on preparing dinner until they are again ready to make it a part of their day. The prepared dinners will not be excessive or exotic, but will be appropriate for their vegan diet, gluten free in part for Mel, and most importantly, meet the nutritional needs for the entire family.
Thank you again for your sincere interest in helping our friend and Training Studio family member.
