‘Empty Your Pantry Food and Fund Drive’ Kickoff Event, February 10-26, 2021

Motivated by the need for virtual health information and exercise, local fitness expert, Tim Anderson, has launched Valor Elite Training, an online physical training and nutrition company. To celebrate and kickstart the introduction of his new company, Anderson has organized the “Empty Your Pantry Food and Fund Drive” to raise items and money for the Food Bank for Larimer County.

“If there’s anything we all learned from this past year, it’s that life can change drastically in seconds,” said Owner, Tim Anderson. “When I heard of the challenges the Food Bank for Larimer Country was experiencing this year due to the pandemic, I just felt moved to do something.”

The “Empty Your Pantry Food and Fund Drive” will run from February 10 through February 26, with the goal of raising $10,000 and 1,000 pounds of food. As an advocate for helping families get healthy food, not only for their physical well-being, but for their mental well-being too, the “Empty Your Pantry Food and Fund Drive” aligns well with Valor Elite Training’s mission.

The event is being co-sponsored by i25Kia who is providing a $5,000 matching grant. That means i25Kia will match every dollar donated, up to $5,000. “This is an exciting partnership,” said Marketing Director for i25Kia, Rochelle Reynolds. “When Tim shared his goals with us, we immediately said yes. Supporting the Food Bank for Larimer County during this time of great need is exactly the type of community event i25Kia wants to be a part of. We’re urging all to support this cause and let’s make sure no family goes hungry tonight.”

Mantooth Marketing & Events is also a co-sponsor of the event. “To celebrate 25 years in business, we are using this event as one of our 25 acts of kindness in the community,” said Owner, Connie Hanrahan. “There’s nothing we like more than supporting a new business and community project that helps so many.”

Valor Elite Training’s owner, Tim Anderson, is mostly known as a former personal trainer at Genesis Health Club, previously Miramont Lifestyle Fitness. During his collective 22 years there, Anderson trained over 1,500 clients. He was chosen among 50 Genesis locations in six states as ‘Personal Trainer of the Year’ two years in a row.
