Former champion boxer Teresa Perozzi, and nutrition health coach and author Agathe Holowatinc, are supporting the Bermuda Diabetes Association through sales of their company Fuelled Bermuda Ltd’s Fit & Fuelled 2020 calendar.They partnered with the Bermuda Diabetes Association to offer a portion of the sale proceeds towards the building of its new, larger centre. Ms Holowatinc, director of Fuelled, said: “I read a couple of months ago that the Bermuda Diabetes Association was working towards building a new centre, and that it will have a new education facility as well as a kitchen for cooking demonstrations.“That is just the kind of thing that we get really excited about at Fuelled. We do cooking demos for small groups of people, including children, and companies right now and there really is so much value in showing people how simple and fun it can be to create healthy foods and to eat healthy. “It is this new centre that they are building that really lit the spark for me to reach out to them to collaborate on the 2020 Fit & Fuelled Bermuda calendar sales proceeds. We want to support that.”Debbie Jones, chairwoman of the Bermuda Diabetes Association, said the association was honoured to have been chosen as the charity for the calendarShe added: “Even though being healthy is a basic human right people need support and encouragement. Thank you to Fuelled Bermuda for providing this support.”The calendar that features a Bermudian or Bermuda resident who is really “living the fuelled life every day, and they share their philosophy on how they stay fit and fuelled year-round”.Ms Holowatinc and Ms Perozzi came up with a list of people to feature in the calendar. Ms Perozzi said: “These role models — from couples to kids to entrepreneurs and more, both men and women — show everyone that despite the negative news sometimes, there is someone who’s done it or is doing it right now here where we live. They wanted to put the spotlight on them. “That’s when we emotionally connect to our goals and stick with them — when we can visualise it as real for ourselves.” The calendar is on sale at various locations, including Beyond Fitness Bermuda, Inside Out Wellness, the Bermuda Diabetes Association, Rock On, Winner Edge Bike Shop, The Bermuda Bookstore, My Sereni-Tea, and Red Laser. It costs $20. Fuelled Bermuda has a website at https://fuelledlife.com/ and Facebook and Instagram at: @fuelledbermuda
