Thank You

Thank you to everyone who has supported Next Level’s ongoing relief efforts along the New Dorp area following Hurricane Sandy’s devastating blow. Over the last few days, we have been blessed with being able to help so many in need on Staten Island. Your kindness and compassion will not go unnoticed and you will not be forgotten anytime soon by those you’ve helped in their time of need. I know there is a great deal of frustation about the pace of our power return, but I’ve watched many who have shown a great deal of patience, kindness and dedicated professionalism throughout this whole mess helping those who have lost so much more than power alone. Next Level Performance is proud of so many of you that have given relief effort, that words alone cannot express.

There are stories of runners who could not compete because of the cancellation of the NYC Marathon that have shown up at various locations for to help in relief efforts. These dedicated athletes who have trained so hard for this event, dissapointed that their training was to no avail, extended their generosity by helping New Yorkers in this time of need. What else can be said of them, they are our inspiration. So, in closing Next Level would again like to express their thanks to all of you who were there physically and those who could not be there for their prayers. Strength cannot only be expressed through exercise and movement but also in how you care for those that are less fortunate. There is a saying in Tibetan, ‘Tragedy should be utilized as a source of strength.’ No matter what sort of difficulties, how painful experience is, if we lose our hope, that’s our real disaster.”  ?  Dalai Lama.

Stronger than Yesterday!!
