Want to Get in Shape and Save Babies at the Same Time?

Then Curves is the place for you! Curves was founded in 1992 by Gary Heavin who currently owns 8000 branches country-wide. Gary Heavin is also a devout Catholic dedicated to saving the lives of unborn babies.

While Curves itself supports no one cause, Heavin himself is an avid Catholic with a firm belief in pro-life causes. Heavin matches the first $1,000 that each franchise raises for community causes such as walkathons to benefit pro-life pregnancy-care centers. In 2003, Heavin pledged one-million dollars (profit from Curves franchises and his two books on the Curves philosophy and phenomenon) to Care Net, a Christian organization that is pro-life and anti-Planned Parenthood (source)

This is excellent news! I'm definitely going to refer people to the closest Curves now. And I want to thank the pro-abortion site, BellaOnline for pointing this out to me. If it wasn't for them, I wouldn't go out of my way to refer people to Curves now.

I am very glad to see this is still going strong.

And gladder still to see more and more events like this popping up. It's a beautiful thing when the Christian community finds a way to appeal to society while sticking to and promoting the faith at the same time. I will certainly be inquiring about this at my parish as soon as I can.
