From the first day we opened our doors at FitnessSocial in 2012, giving back to the local community was always part of our mission and something we still hold very dear to our hearts five years later. On Friday, October 27th from 5:30pm to 7:00pm, we will be hosting Happy Hour Yoga at the studio in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Lucy Najarian Wells will be leading the donation based yoga class, followed by healthy bites and wine provided by Rappit Up! and FitVine Wine. All proceeds will benefit The Art of Life Cancer Foundation and tickets can be purchased at http://bit.ly/2y2asQq Bring your friends and family and come share in this memorable event that has special meaning for our own Lucy Najarian Wells and so many of us from the FitnessSocial Family. Learn about all the great community services and events that The Art of Life Cancer Foundation provides to our local community at www.artoflifecancer.org.
“I have seen the Art of Life experience transform lives and challenge hundreds to share their cancer story over the last 7 years. Recognizing that everyone is in some way affected by cancer, we anticipate with great joy the beauty, strength, and renewal that will touch all who enter the healing garden.”
– Jenelle Higton, Executive Director
In addition to giving back to our local community, we partnered with Causely’s Sweat Angels in early 2016 to be able to help more causes on a global basis. Through Causely’s Sweat Angels, we have helped numerous non-profit organizations with their cause just by asking our clients to check-in at our location on Facebook and Instagram. We made it so easy that you don’t even have to come in to FitnessSocial to help donate!
The mission of Causley’s Sweat Angels is to connect and empower businesses, communities and non-profits to create a better world, which ties in perfectly with the mission of FitnessSocial… .To help make the world a healthier and fitter place to live!
Sweat Angel’s Charity for October: Bright Pink
During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Causely’s Sweat Angels has partnered with Bright Pink to provide women the tools they need for detection and prevention of breast cancer. Every 3 check-ins will provide 1 woman access to a breast cancer risk assessment.
Bright Pink is a national non-profit focused on saving young women’s lives through the prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer. Bright Pink’s innovation programs educate and equip young women and their doctors to assess their risk for breast and ovarian cancer, reduce their risk and detect these diseases at early, non-life-threatening stages.
Bright Pink’s Mission:
We’re saving women’s lives from breast and ovarian cancer by empowering them to live proactively at a young age. We target the 52 million women between the ages of 18-45, as well as the people who love and influence them.
We focus on health, not cancer, to inspire women to practice prevention. Our innovative programs, strategic initiatives and powerful partnerships directly reach women in their daily lives and healthcare providers in their daily practice.
Their Approach in Action:
We take a two-pronged approach to breast and ovarian health education. By educating young women as well as their healthcare providers, we’re fostering a supportive healthcare relationship where informed women have proactive conversations with trusted providers on a regular basis. Our unique mix of digital and in-person tactics drives exponential health behavior change.
