Reston Now Readers, We Need Your Help

Advertising-supported local news outlets in the D.C. area and across the country are taking a big hit while the COVID-19 pandemic unfolds.

As the crisis deepens, Reston Now is in a tough spot. Starting today we’re asking you — our readers — to help us keep our coverage going over the next several months.

Since we launched in 2013, we’ve always prided ourselves in providing free content to our community and we’ve never asked readers to support our operations. But during these unprecedented times, we need your help.

If you would like to continue reading Reston Now and you’re able to give us a few bucks a month, we would greatly appreciate you contributing to our coverage via PayPal or joining our Patreon.

We have two monthly options: $6 and $10. Every donation will help us keep our news operation going. If you’d like to give more, we would prefer you save the big bucks for local nonprofits like Cornerstones or the COVID-19 Response Fund for Northern Virginia.

This is a temporary measure and we will let you know when the coast is clear and we can resume being 100% advertising-supported. Thank you for your readership and, for those who are able to contribute, your support.

Chris Green is one of the DMV’s finest fitness instructors. A Lululemon and South Block ambassador, he is a coach and mentor to so many. He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place. He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.

He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead. As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy. CG is no longer able to work and do what he loves for the time being because of this and we’d love your support.
