YMCA Exercise-A-Thon

in Sports by

The Wardle Family YMCA will host its second annual Exercise-A Thon on Saturday, June 9, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. to assist the 2012 Annual Scholarship Campaign goal for the year. This four-hour event invites everyone to participate in aerobic exercises from stability ball class, spinning, Zumba, kickboxing, power circuit, Pilates, Tabata and yoga. The cost is $10 per person to participate; however, donations beyond $10 are more than welcome. Non-Y members are invited to participate and will receive a complimentary day pass as an added thank you.
Due to limited space in our spinning room, Y members, guests and community participants are asked to reserve their spin bike in advance by either visiting the Y at 1801 Richmond Ave. in Port Royal or by calling 843-522-9622. All other participants can register and pledge on the morning of the event.
The event goal is $3,000. All money raised will benefit the 2012 Annual Scholarship Campaign designed to offer discounted programs and memberships to individuals and families in need.
Individuals can participate in any and all exercises and can make a donation amount of their choice. All participants will be entered to win great door prizes and refreshments will be provided as well as nutrition coaching and calorie burning information. YMCA CEO Michael Bostwick says, “I am really excited about the event. Our goal is to get as many people to participate as possible. At the same time that people are participating with friends and neighbors and getting healthier, they are participating in making their community stronger with their Annual Scholarship Campaign donations.”
The YMCA is a charitable organization open to people of all abilities, ages, beliefs, cultures, faiths, and incomes. Financial assistance is available based on need. For more information, visit www.ymcabeaufortcounty.com or call 843-522-9622.
