Synopsis

Gary & Diane Heavin, CEOs/founders of Curves International, Inc., the world‘s largest fitness franchise company, leave their thousand-acre ranch in Texas and spend a week living in Houston‘s "Third Ward," where 20% of the residents live in extreme poverty. Gary & Diane will stay in a rundown one-bedroom home in a neighborhood not far from where Gary was born, home to one of the highest crime rates in the nation. They will have to survive on $6.50 per day, the equivalent of food stamps for a two-person household in Texas. During this time, they discover three exceptional organizations working to make a difference in the community and surprise them with donations of thousands of dollars from their own fortune. [ABC]
