By SARA VANDEN BERGE
Savion Washington with SDUB Fitness in Stephenville is hosting a special event on Saturday, July 18, aimed at raising money for businesses and non-profit organizations that focus on kids.
“This is a charity event,” Savion told BTS News. “I want to raise money for businesses like Studio 6:14 and Stephenville Dance Center and organizations like Stephenville Youth Wrestling, Backpack Buddies of Erath County, Big Brothers Big Sisters and the Foster’s Home for Children that support youth.”
The event, called Trust the Process and BENEFIT the Youth, will take place from 5-7 p.m. on July 18 at City Hall at The Agave.
Tickets go on sale June 29 and only 150 will be sold.
“I will give a motivational speech and there will also be a silent auction,” Savion said.
He will share his story on what led to a mental breakdown several years ago and the steps he took to regain his footing.
“I lost my identity after playing sports; I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life,” he said.
In 2018, Savion started SDUB Fitness in Garland, then a year later he and his wife moved to Stephenville and brought the concept with them.
“SDUB Fitness is a community; an environment that motivates people to work out and be around positive energy,” he said.
IN THE WORKS
Savion is also in the process of writing his first book, SDUB: The Real Meaning, and plans to give attendees a sneak peak at what’s inside.
“I will talk about the journey I have been on so far,” he said. “We all have bad days, but perseverance and positivity took me from zero to 100 real fast. This book is meant to pick people up and inspire them.”
The book is slated to be complete by the end of the year.
