It all started with Tian Tian, a 10 year-old girl from an orphans and disadvantaged children’s home in Shanghai. When Thierry visited the children’s home in 2015, he met Tian Tian who shared her dream that is to “be able to regularly attend school, and become a nurse to take care of [her] sick mum.” Thierry handed Tian Tian a book, and promised her that if she works hard and continues to believe, her dreams will come true. When Thierry left the centre, he promised to dedicate part of his life to ensure more children can survive and thrive, and that was the beginning of FITHEARTS.
The following month, Thierry created the campaign “Fight for a Cause” and competed in White Collar Boxing, an amateur boxing fight to raise support and awareness for impoverished children. His goal was to provide a one-year education sponsorship to one child in China, and help buy a piece of land to build a secondary orphanage school in Kenya. Through this journey, Thierry discovered and connected with individuals who share the same passion for fitness, and a strong desire to help others.
Since the start, FITHEARTS has sponsored two children in China, and contributed to the buying of a piece of land to build an orphanage school in Kenya. This experience has taught us that caring on its own simply doesn’t count, action is what matters. To keep ourselves committed to that premise, FITHEARTS aim to become a global movement where passionate individuals come together to take action, and become agents of change. We will continue to work tirelessly in breaking down the cycle of poverty by bringing equal access to education, healthcare, and fitness to everyone around the world.
We lead change by example with every action, big or small, as ethical, genuine, and responsible.
We are more than just words. We stand up and fight for those who can’t fight for themselves.
We fight and sweat for a greater good, and tough out the struggles because the outcome is greater than the sum of all parts.
We are honest and open. Our actions are accessible to the public at anytime.
We fight for the things that truly matter with precision focus.
Results are what we’re all about.
