World Gym in Mishawaka hosts benefit for Tiffany Brantley

Posted:
MISHAWAKA - Supporters rallied at World Gym in Mishawaka Saturday afternoon to raise money for Tiffany Brantley's recovery.

"So humble, it's a very humble girl," says Aaron White, about his girlfriend Tiffany Brantley.


Brantley was seriously injured in May after she was hit by a drunk driver while she was jogging early in the morning. She worked at World Gym for about eight years and they say the idea to have a benefit was a no brainer,

 "Everyone has been on board with wanting to help. I mean it was almost a no brainer. We went to many places, let them know what was going on, how Tiffany was doing and they were just like where do we sign up, how can we help?"

The event went from 1- 4 p.m. on Saturday. Participants purchased food, played games, and bought auction items to donate money. White says Brantley's recovery is going really well, "Recovery is going awesome, unbelievably quick. I mean, she's doing so well, and she's a fighter anyway," he says. She was  supposed to be in the ICU for about two more weeks, but was able to start her physical therapy in rehab during the benefit.  If you miss the event, there's still ways to donate. World Gym always accepts cash or check donations to Brantley's cause. On July 19th there will also be a run/walk at Beutter Park in Mishawaka. The event will last from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. To register call South Bend Transit FCU at 574-232-2192.
