"It's amazing to watch Out-Fit Challenge and our mission begin to branch out," says Founder and CEO of Out-Fit Challenge, Tory Fitzgerald. "I created this organization in the hopes that it could bring together people from opposite ends of the spectrum for one cause, and Out-Fit Challenge has definitely accomplished this. It has grown to extraordinary levels of participation, and we can’t wait to see the turnout in other cities as well."
