Firstly, thank you to the incredible Avanti Pilates community for supporting our first donation-based class! We were moved by your contributions to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and loved celebrating with a group Pilates mat session.
For November, we’re turning our attention to National Diabetes Month and the Joslin Diabetes Center. November first became National Diabetes Month in 1975 (though it wasn’t recognized by Congress and the U.S. presidents until the early 1980s) to increase public awareness of diabetes and recognize the stories and struggles of those living with the disease. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 34.2 million Americans, slightly more than 1 in 10, currently have diabetes and 88 million adults, or 1 in 3, have prediabetes.
That’s why we’re coming together to help.
Head to the Avanti Pilates main page and make a donation through the PayPal link. Next, click “Register Here” and reserve your spot in class. It’s that easy! Then, we’ll unite for a group mat class through Zoom on Nov. 18 at 5 p.m. PST. Plus, all proceeds will benefit the world-renowned Joslin Diabetes Center.
Please share this event with your friends and family, and thank you again for your support of our donation-based program. We look forward to making a difference and seeing you in class!
