OCTOBER NEWS AT PEDAL & WHEEL™ FITNESS
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
The month of October is very significant to me. Its the month that I’ve always looked forward to, as it is my Birthday Month, Halloween and the beginning of planning our festive Christmas Season. But it is also the month that I lost my mother to Breast Cancer seven years ago and one that reminds me of how vulnerable we all are. So I would like to dedicate this month to all of our loved ones who have departed from us and to those who are Survivors of Cancer.
When I first opened Pedal & Wheel™ Fitness in 2012, I felt compelled and hosted a charity ride in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness and to my mother, that was dubbed “Ride The Ribbon” for Breast Cancer Awareness. It was very special and successful because we got the support from you our members, the wider community and from the Jamaica Cancer Society. I had intended for this to be an annual event, but personal issues and 'kick your butt' business realities prevented me from hosting this event last year. But when you truly believe in something and are passionate about it, it will never die.
So I’m happy to announce that this charity ride, “Ride The Ribbon” for Breast Cancer Awareness is back on our schedule and will be held on Saturday, October 25 2014. Check Our Flyer For Details.
We would like to put together a slide show to honor your loved ones, to be aired at the charity event and to be placed on our website. If you have someone that you would like to dedicate this charity ride to, please send a picture along with their names and a message if you have one, that you would like us to include.
We will also be having a raffle, for chances to win ‘The Challenge’ - a 6 Week Training Programme with Jodi Mair and a 30 Day Gentle Detox with Natalie Murray. This raffle will be held right after the charity ride, so purchase your tickets early at Pedal & Wheel™ Fitness for a chance to win these life changing experiences.
Members who are unable to participate in this Charity Ride but would still like to make a contribution, can do so by making a cheque donation payable to the Jamaica Cancer Society. A donation box will be made available at Pedal & Wheel™ Fitness.
Thank you in advance for your contribution and participation in this Charity Event and towards the fight against Cancer in Jamaica.
See you on the bike and remember to select your teams early for the "Ride The Ribbon" Charity Ride.
Wheel and come again.
