October is Breast Cancer Month, and it's a month that is close to the hearts of many of us at Orangetheory Fitness Barrie. Many women in our community - members, staff, family and friends - have been affected by breast cancer and together we want to show our support by getting active and taking action! On October 26th from 4-6pm we will be running and rowing to raise funds for the Sunflower Warriors, a local group whose mission is empowering women in a supportive network of mentorship and navigation after a breast cancer diagnosis. We've witnessed first hand the power of these women to change the lives of many in our community, but they can't do it alone! They need our help!
In April of this year we held our first Run/Row for Breast Cancer. We raised over $2000 and were able to support the Sunflower Warriors in hosting their first retreat. Our goal this time is to double that number!
The event will be followed by dinner and celebrations at The Local Gastropub, who will be generously donating a portion of their sales from the evening to our cause.
Please join us in this effort. Get active, take action! You can participate by running or rowing, sponsor a participant, be a cheerleader at the event or join us at The Local. There are so many ways you can make a difference in the lives of women and their families right here in Barrie.
