“I started CHAARG at Clemson University because I was lacking a friend group that was focused more on the wellness aspect. I didn’t want to lose myself + who I was as a person so I sought out CHAARG ++ truly found my home. Along with the overarching mission of CHAARG my exec team aspires to create a place where everyone can come together.”

I decided tobring CHAARG to my school as a way for girls to feelmore confident + excited about their fitness journey as well as give girls a close community of other girlspassionate about the same things!”
