We’re celebrating our 2nd annual Burpees for Boobs event and have raised over $ 10,000 as of this blog post!
To start, we wanted to give a HUGE shout-out and thank you to our members and locations who have been hard at work raising donations in their community. You can take a peek at our top Kaia Member fundraisers here.
But we’re not done! We’ll be raising money throughout the rest of the month, so please share our donation page or donate here! We thank you in advance.
So, what’s the deal with this event? Any Kaia girl can tell you that burpees are simply a staple at Kaia…they are a full body workout that challenges your strength, endurance, and mental capacity. We wanted to combine one of our most beloved exercises with a cause that was close to our communities’ hearts: raising money to increase the number of women and men who survive and thrive after breast cancer.
Substantial support for breast cancer awareness and research funding has helped create advances in the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. Breast cancer survival rates have increased, and the number of deaths associated with this disease is steadily declining, largely due to factors such as earlier detection, a new personalized approach to treatment and a better understanding of the disease.
For the past two years, we have linked up with iGo Pink, national non-profit, with a focus on “…educating, empowering and encouraging all men and women to become pro-active in preventing breast cancer and, if diagnosed, surviving breast cancer.”
All money raised through our fundraiser will go to one of three sections of their organization:
- Help Now Fun
- Feel Beautiful Again
We challenge our community to participate in regular screenings (at home or with your doctor), encourage any males you have in your life to do the same, and continue sharing our donation link to raise money throughout the end of the month. We aren’t in this battle alone, and together, we are Kaia Strong.
