If you could only imagine what this means to us and the Ambitious Fit Fam; we know that we have something special here, but for people outside of these walls to recognize that, means A LOT.

You see, MSE believes that it is important to support the community that supports our Washington teams, and the one way that they do that is by participating in the Capital One Community Champion program highlighting leaders that have impacted the DC community via its ( five pillars: Military/Veteran, Hunger and Homeless, Education, Fitness and Health, and Youth Basketball.

We’re especially pumped that they not only had our faces up on the jumbotron but also the faces of our Fit Fam; because it's really about you, the great people that make up this special place. 

#bettertogether / Fit Fam on the jumbotron.

We couldn’t be more excited to share this award and our community with the great people of Washington, DC.

Be Ambitious. Be a part of something bigger than yourself.
