A Milan woman is getting a chance to pursue her passion, and help others with theirs.
Diane Jackson was surprised Monday night with a check for $2,500. Jackson opened Verve, a small fitness facility, to help people live healthier lives regardless of income. She said the money will help pay the rent, get her up to date on training and help buy new equipment for her gym.
"This is a phenomenal surprise, something I never, I obviously when I put the application in, it was for hope and a dream and I didn't think it was going to come true," said Jackson.
Jackson also hopes to organize a 5k run next year.
