During the month of April, the MAX Challenge of Union/Springfield participated in the annual "Max Day of Giving" campaign. The Day of Giving is designed to bring together each center, its members, and the community to raise awareness, support, and funds for local charities. The MAX Challenge of Union/Springfield chose Susan G. Komen of North Jersey, located in Summit, as the recipient of their "Day of Giving" event. In addition to special classes, t-shirt sales, and other fundraising efforts, a MAX mini-Olympics was held at the Loop Pavilion of the Watchung Reservation on Saturday, April 22nd.

Franchise Co-owner Allison DiMarzio was inspired by a member who has been stricken with breast cancer and continues her workouts inbetween treatments.
