Rise Combat Sports started this petition to Governor Doug Ducey

We own a small martial arts gym in Tucson, Arizona, and are part of a huge community of other family-owned gyms in Arizona. Most of us do not make a lot of money on our businesses but do it out of love for fitness and our members. That being said, many of us are not getting any breaks from our landlords, and/or any help from the federal or local governments. We are in danger of losing everything we have worked for. 

All of the undersigned, have been compliant with the Stay at Home orders thus far and have done our best to stop the spread of COVID-19. Many of us have been teaching zoom classes to try to keep our gym families active, but still, we have lost a ton of revenue by freezing all or most of our members. We have been working hard to develop great strategies for reopening which includes but is not limited to social distancing, limited class size, temperature taking, and improved cleaning and sanitizing measures. 

We are asking that Doug Ducey takes into consideration-that all gyms should not be classified together.  Small, privately owned gyms have a greater ability to put measures in place immediately and we are more than ready to start. It will be very easy for us to maintain safety standards set forth by local, state, and federal governments. This will allow our trainers to work, clients to maintain their health, and keep our businesses alive. We consider ourselves essential in our communities.
