ReActivate New & Used Activewear doesn’t just specialize in resale sportswear and gear; they also focus on transforming their community by offering healthy solutions. The company’s mission is to promote fitness and make sportswear and gear affordable, encouraging people to live more active and healthier lifestyles.
ReActivate donates sportswear and light gear to those less fortunate, hosts health and wellness fairs, provides nutritional and exercise education and presents workshops on how to ReActivate the health of individuals and families.
ReActivate is combating the alarming obesity rate, which linked to many preventable diseases. At one time, the father of ReActivate’s owner weighed 398 pounds and had many health issues. With inspiration and determination, he now weights 168 pounds and has beaten Type II diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol through a regimen of exercise and proper nutrition. ReActivate is dedicated to making a positive difference by encouraging exercise and helping people to just get moving.
Anyone with new or slightly used sportswear and equipment can receive cash or trade in exchange for their gear. The sports items must be washed and either gently used or new. Sellers receive a percentage of the price for which the item is sold. Items that can’t be sold in the store will be donated to health and wellness events to inspire those less fortunate by giving them the right clothing for the right activity.
ReActivate nonprofit donation recipients include TMC Girls on the Run. To date, the company has donated more than 220 sportswear items, including running shorts, performance tops, sports bras, lightweight jackets and caps.
