Phyt Cares is the minority and woman-led 501c3 U.S. tax-exempt and 1101.01 Puerto Rico tax-exempt (Child Eradication of Poverty [CECFL approved]) arm of Phyt Gym founded by Jonas Serrano and co-founded by Elana Margulies-Snyderman that educates youth and communities through fitness in New York City, Puerto Rico and the U.S. (virtually) supported predominantly by alternative investment professionals and Act 60 recipients in Puerto Rico.
In the New York City area, we are proud to partner with the following groups where we provide weekly fitness programs: Kool Kids Passaic (NJ), a Jewish community organization for youth with special needs; YAI, a non-profit for young adults with special needs; and Issac Newton Middle School in East Harlem where we prepare 8th graders for high school.
In Puerto Rico, some of our proud partners include Team SMC (a woman-owned fitness brand that hosts fitness events), El Gimnasio Boxeo La Perla where we sponsor and support athletes for competitions; El Complejo Correccional Bayamón for incarcerated women; and Luquillo Surf Rescue, a youth surf charity. On the Island, Phyt Cares has also been instrumental in creating employment and empowering young entrepreneurs by giving them a platform to run and grow their businesses including Christianson (restaurant/bar), Motus Rehab PR (physical therapy), El Beauty de Condado, Body Art Gallery and more.
Phyt Cares is extremely proud that all the money raised goes directly to the communities we serve since we don't have any employees.
On behalf of Jonas, Elana and our entire Board of Directors, from the bottom of our hearts, we wanted to thank you for your support.

Jonas Serrano, President
