BENEFITING: Breast Treatment Task Force
ORGANIZER: Breast Treatment Task Force
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2016
For the past several years, I have been volunteering for the Breast Treatment Task Force (BTTF), an amazing organization that provides diagnostic follow-up and breast cancer treatment for uninsured low-income women in New York City.
I understand all too well the financial burden of breast cancer, as my mother's breast cancer therapy continues today, three years after her initial diagnosis. (I am happy to report that she recently received another clear bill of health!) Unfortunately, for individuals who are uninsured or underinsured, breast cancer diagnostics and treatment usually lead to large medical debts or bankruptcy.
My mother and I have been overwhelmed by the support of our friends and family who have helped us raise almost $5000 for BTTF over the past 3 years. This year, I hope to raise another $1,500, which can deliver 3 MRIs with BTTF's average return on investment of 8:1.
100% of funds raised from the spin will go towards medical services.
Donations large and small are greatly appreciated. Alternately, please let me know if you are interested in spinning!
Participants should raise or donate $150 to secure a seat in this 45-minute spin class starting at 1:00PM. Participants may also enjoy espresso and tea generously provided by Joe Coffee before or after the class, and will get full access to the New York Health and Racquet Club facilities on April 17th (lock not included).
Jeanette Eng from last year's Spin event will be returning to teach this very special class. Jeanette is a Johnny G certified spin instructor with a repertoire including: cycling, boot camp, abs, and butt plus variations. Her classes at The New York Health & Racquet Club are are consistently packed and we're excited to have her back!
