How Shirlee’s gives back to our community


ShirleeStrong! Giving Back

Because we are a local small business (not a chain), we want to be good neighbors. As a gym exclusively for women, Shirlee’s Ultimate Women’s Gym is committed to supporting causes that improve the health and empower the lives of women and girls in our community.

Examples of causes we support include:

The Susan G. Komen Foundation to help find a cure for breast cancer
National Charity League Foothill Chapter to support its scholarship program for young women
City of Hope to hold blood drives
Relay for Life Upland to raise money for cancer research
Local Schools to raise money for sports teams
Community Senior Services to help local seniors stay in their homes
ShirleeStrong Membership Fund to help pay for gym memberships for women from our community who have cancer or other health issues who would otherwise be unable to afford membership.

We welcome you to join us in our outreach by making a donation. You can donate online or come in to the gym. For more information, please call (909) 985-6400. Thank you for your support.
