Markman's Makes Donation to Survivor Fitness Foundation



Steve Markman, President of Markman’s recently presented a check for $3,000 to Meg Grunke, Co-Founder and Executive Director for Survivor Fitness Foundation. The check was presented as a result of two recent fundraisers held at Markman’s flagship location at 6932 Kingston Pike in Knoxville.

The Roberto Coin Fundraiser Event and DA Gold Fundraiser Event were held in December. At each fundraiser, Markman’s offered a special selection of jewelry from both designers for the events. A portion of the proceeds was then donated to Survivor Fitness Foundation. “We are extremely happy to make a donation to such a deserving organization like Survivor Fitness Foundation for the second year in a row,” said Steve Markman. “Markman’s has had a long tradition of giving back to the community, and we wanted our fundraiser events to be a continuation of that spirit of charity.”

Survivor Fitness Foundation is a non-profit organization focused on helping cancer survivors in the Knoxville and Nashville areas regain health and wellness through one-on-one personal training.
