Sign ups for the charity boot camp are fantastic. It is shaping up to be our highest attended and biggest impact event yet – and we are still nine days away!
We have also sold several gift certificates – 50% of which goes to the same charity we are supporting with the boot camp, the Wellspring Women’s Center.
We thought it would be a good thing to share with you a little more info on the Wellspring Women’s Center and what they do. First, watch this video to learn more about the Wellspring Women’s Center:
Also, here is some basic info about the organization from their website:
What is Wellspring Women’s Center?
Wellspring Women’s Center is a nondenominational, nonprofit organization founded in 1987 by two sisters of social service with the mission to nurture the innate goodness and personal self esteem of women and their children. Wellspring started from humble beginnings and has grown to become a trusted neighborhood gathering place that reduces isolation and loneliness. We serve over 200 women and their children every week day, providing a nutritious breakfast, free counseling and safety net services.

Any female may come to Wellspring, there is no other criterion. Guests are diverse in age, personal background and ethnicity.
