The Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship today honored Hoosier CrossFit of Bloomington, Indiana as the Small Business of the Day for National Small Business Week. This business, which was nominated by U.S. Senator Todd Young (R-ID), will be recognized in the Congressional Record of the U.S. Senate.
“Small businesses are drivers of our local economies, but they are also an integral part of our local communities. It’s really great to see a business such as Hoosier CrossFit care about not just a bottom line, but the people and community they serve,” said Senator Young. “It’s an honor to recognize them during Small Business Week.”
Led by Hoosier natives Shaun and Jenna Tieman, Hoosier CrossFit provides fitness programs to members of all ages and abilities. In just over six years, the gym has expanded from an 1,800 square foot facility with four members to an 8,600 square foot facility with nearly 200 members.
In addition to its business success, Hoosier CrossFit should be honored for its community involvement, including organizing successful fundraisers for the American Red Cross and Wish for Our Heroes.
"Congratulations to Hoosier CrossFit for receiving this recognition," said U.S. Senator Jim Risch, chairman of the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship. "Our nation relies on the 28 million small business owners to keep our economy moving forward, and I'm glad to highlight their achievements this week."
For over 50 years, the President of the United States has issued a proclamation announcing National Small Business Week, which recognizes the critical contributions of America’s entrepreneurs and small business owners. As part of National Small Business Week, the U.S. Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship takes the opportunity to highlight the impact of outstanding entrepreneurs, small business owners, and others from all 50 states and U.S. territories. As chairman, Risch honors America’s small businesses and entrepreneurs in the Senate regularly.
