May 2024 Members Jim Charity Stanley, Jim in blue pullover and Charity in blue tee with purple sweater
Pearce would like to recognize Jim & Charity Stanley as our May Members of the Month!

Jim, a Product Support Manager at CAT, and Charity, a Speech-Language Pathologist with Peoria Public Schools, have been active members at Pearce for the last 18 years! When they moved to the area, their 3 children were 5, 3 and 1. Pearce offered a great place to have fun with the family, work out and stay active.

Their kids were able to take advantage of ALL the things for years – including swim club (shout out to Coach Matt!), volleyball, soccer, kids camps (thanks Carie!), dance and karate classes and then in their teens – the workout facilities…all the while, we could work out and join the spin & exercise classes that were offered. We have also participated in events periodically organized by Pearce, including Run for the Health of It 5K and Jim in the Indoor Triathlon.

Maintaining an active lifestyle is a priority for the Stanley’s and they love that they can share it with their kids. It helps them decompress and manage stressful days. They know it’s beneficial to their overall health…and simply put, they feel better!

In their free time you can find them running (lately they have been drawn to ultra trail running) golfing, camping or biking.

Neither Jim or Charity have a favorite quote, they believe in positive mindsets, setting small goals, working through the tough moments, accepting failure knowing that you will be stronger for it. Just keep going…one step at a time.

The advice the Stanley’s would give to other members – take advantage of the variety of activities for the entire family that Pearce offers! They are thankful to have a place like Pearce so close.

Thank you, Jim & Charity for choosing to be Pearce members!
