VWHC Bootcamp Fundraiser!
SEPT 4TH 2020

 

Local trainer Shana Alexander will be offering a Bootcamp to Benefit for VWHC on Sunday, September 20th at 9:30 AM PST on Zoom. Proceeds from this class will go to help us raise money for our Healthy Body cause! Our kitchen area is minimal and a fridge+freezer combo plus kitchen cabinets would allow us to accept healthier donations of produce and protein.

 

Bootcamp to Benefit is an all-levels, all welcome, cardio and strength combo class. Modifications are provided so everyone leaves feeling stronger. You don’t want to miss it!

 

Join the sweat in these two easy steps:

 

1) Sign up for the class by contacting Shana here.

2) Donate to VWHC here through PayPal or CanadaHelps; no amount is too small or too big!

 

Your impact:

Every donation helps us reach our goal of $1,500:

  • $60 buys a single-door wall cabinet (2 needed)
  • $110 buys a 2-door wall cabinet (3 needed)
  • $250 to $1,200 goes toward fridge+freezer combo!
See you Sunday, September 20th!
