Workout For St. Jude Children's Research Hospital - Saturday, Feb 16th - UPDATE

Yes, he's in there. ^
My nephew, Matt, is heavily involved in raising money for sick kids through Penn State's THON, the largest student-run philanthropy in the world. For the last 2 years, on the same weekend, I’ve held a Workout for St. Jude at Body & Soul to also help seriously ill kids. This year is no different.

Unfortunately, Body & Soul can't hold that many so reserve your spot. 


Mark your calendar and join me for a fun and challenging group workout session.

Spread the word among your friends, family, neighbors and co-workers. I would love to be able to have enough people to warrant two sessions - one at 9:00 AM and one at 10:00 AM. You can help me make that happen.

Body & Soul members and friends have raised almost $10,700 for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital since 2005. Not Exactly the $89+ million that PSU students have raised for THON but we do
pretty well for a small gym. :-)

Donation is $20 or $20 or more in sponsor donations. Sponsor sheets are available at Body & Soul Fitness Studio.

If you can't work out with us, please consider being a sponsor.

The workout will last approximately 45 minutes, including warmup and cooldown.

All fitness levels are invited. Exercises will be adapted or substituted, as necessary. Anyone 12 and older is welcome to participate.


How long can you keep that hoop spinning? Put your core hooping skills to the test, have some fun, and support the good work at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Let's add to the Body & Soul donation this year by having some fun with hoops!

We'll be holding two contests. The first begins at 10:30 AM, and the second at 11:00 AM. The prize for each contest is a brand new, sparkly, handmade fitness hoop, valued at $35-$40! Contestants will have their hooping endurance challenged with a series of different moves. The last hooper spinning wins!

Cost to enter each contest is $10. Hoops will be provided for use during the contest - no need to bring your own - but you can if you have a favorite.

Space is limited for both the group workout and the hooping contests so, if possible, please let us know you'll be attending. Call Mickey at (717) 509-7777 to register or for more information. However, if you decide last minute that’s fine, too. Raising as much money as possible is obviously the goal!


There will also be other activities like chair massage, tarot readings, etc. We’re still trying to coordinate some additional fun. You can take advantage of everything that weekend for a minimum donation of $35.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call me.

All proceeds benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, where no child is ever turned away due to parental inability to pay and no family is billed for services not paid by insurance.
