The Eminence Kids Foundation expanded its United States impact to Charleston, South Carolina. Eminence Kids is donating two large boxes of organic produce each week via Green Lite Organics to a Charleston-area, long-term care facility. This new partnership was made possible by the fundraising efforts of spa leader, and Charleston resident, Monica Helmstetter. Helmstetter, a triathlete and event director for Spatec North America, coined #spaspushinglimits, which links to posts encouraging spa professionals to train for challenging fitness competitions while fundraising for esteemed charities. The team of #spaspushinglimits athletes competed in the Victoria Half Ironman in June o 2017, with all proceeds benefiting Eminence Kids, totaling over $10,000.
