The Phoenixville location is the second fitness center for the Wall Cycling Studio. The studio opened its doors this past summer and the response from the community was outstanding. Now that we are well into the holiday season, Juliet Sabella and Cat Stier, owners of the Wall Cycling Studio in Phoenixville, are in the giving spirit. They have decided to ‘adopt’ a family in need for the holidays in efforts to make sure this is a holiday they won’t forget and to encourage others to give as well. The adopted family is still dealing with the stress of a flood that destroyed most of their memories and unfortunately are unable to provide well-deserved toys and gifts for all the kids.
Juliet and Cat learned about the family from PACS. After the mother’s position at her job was eliminated, she was forced to find a part-time job. Later, she began going to school to ensure a better future for herself and her kids; 16, 14 and 6-year-old daughters, 10 and 11-year-old sons and her one-year-old granddaughter. Sadly, this year money has been very tight and it will be the first time that her children may not receive gifts for Christmas. The Wall Cycling Studio believes with help from the community, together they can make sure that all of the kids have something to open on Christmas morning. Juliet and Cat are asking for donations, wrapped or unwrapped, to be dropped off at their Phoenixville center. They encourage people to get creative! “Big or small, your kindness and thoughtfulness for this local family will go a very long way!” says Stier.
