Helping Point Loma Sports Club
In November 2012, Gary Rubin opened the doors to his brand new gym, Point Loma Sports Club. Hoping to make this club more than just a gym, he invested much of his time getting to know his members and helping people meet their fitness and personal goals. By 2019, with the help of his daughter, Jessica, membership at the Sports Club had grown and the business was on a good track.
In late 2019, Gary was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer.
In March 2020 Covid-19 forced the shut-down of the gym. When gyms were allowed to re-open, PLSC was one of the first gyms in San Diego to open an outdoor facility.
With Gary’s declining health, Jessica, now 24, took charge and faced the challenge of managing the business and the outdoor gym.
November 9, 2020 Gary lost his battle with cancer. Now Jessica is in charge of running this gym, and is more committed than ever to keep the doors open.
Another challenge has developed for Jessica, as a result of the storms that hit San Diego this past weekend. The Sports Club’s outdoor tent was collapsed as a result of the winds and the fitness equipment was damaged
Because of the generosity of many San Diegans, we were able to present Point Loma Sports Club with $10,000 to help repair the tent and other needs. Thank you to everyone who helped make it happen!
