Day 10 – Sweating for a cause


(My evening run!  I love this city!)  Sweating is great. Am I right?  But sweating is even better when there’s a great cause involved.  1 School 1 Day.  What is this you ask?  Sound a bit familiar to imagine1Day, which you’ve heard me talk lots about before?  Well keep on reading…

Who/Why:

1 school 1 day’s goals:

–       To raise $100,000 (cost to build one primary school in Ethiopia with imagine1day)

–       5,000 participants moving at the same time all across Vancouver (so cool!)

(September 24, 2011 @ 1:00pm!!)

–       To unify the Health and Fitness Community towards a greater good (YES!!!)

Sounds cool right?!  Well here’s your chance to join in. Elizabeth, a good friend of mine from work at the lululemon Store Support Centre (SSC), is leading her rockstar class of Core and More during this powerful hour.

Her big hairy goal: to help support 1 School 1 Day by holding a fitness class Sept 24th at 1pm to raise money to build a school in Ethiopia.  $20 is all it takes to help out and also get a workout in!

Our goal: to fill the atrium with 80 sweaty peeps!  I can’t even imagine the energy that is going to be created.  This is gonna be good. Interested??!

Where:  

At the SSC in the Atrium – 2nd Floor, 1818 Cornwall Ave, Vancouver, BC

I will be there with bells on, and YOU are invited to join in!!  (You get to come for a visit to lululemon’s head office! + you get to get your sweat on!!)

What you need to bring:

  • Yoga mat
  • Clothes to sweat in
  • Water bottle
  • A smile :) (I added that one!)

How do I sign up?

Go to http://1school1day-group.eventbrite.com/

Then Select GROUP TRAINING: Quest4Fitness (Vancouver – Cornwall) – I will see you there!  Tickets are going fast, so make sure to sign up soon!

If this gets you excited, and you just can’t wait, check out another rockstar event.  Salutation Nation 2011.  An international day of yoga.  Everyone practicing and sharing the love across the nation at 9am (your local time) this coming Saturday, September 10th.  Click on the link to find a location near you.  Or stop by your local lululemon store for more deets.  If you pick up one of these cards, you can plant it in your garden and wild flowers will grow – no kidding.  Crazy!  (I’ll be coming off a night shift, and am going to try hard to keep myself awake for this before popping some zzzzz’s!  Don’t want to miss it!)  And if you’ve never tried yoga?  Well now’s a perfect time to start.  Imagine what a different place the world would be if everyone practiced yoga. Just imagine.  There’s no better time to start than right now. :)

Smile with your heart!
