3. Vagabond First Annual Mother’s Day Workout in Support of Breast Cancer on Sunday, May 8th
Please join us for the first annual Vagabond Mother’s Day benefit workout to support Susan G. Komen and the fight against breast cancer where their mission is: To save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering others, ensuring quality care for all and investing in science to find the cures.
We’ve all been touched by this disease which does not discriminate. Our great friend and long-time Vagabond member, Robin Johnson Taylor, is a two-time breast cancer survivor. She is deeply involved with the Susan G. Komen 3 day walk and will walk 3 days/ 60 miles this year, with a crowd of incredible supporters and survivors, to end breast cancer.
This special workout will take place on Mother’s Day, Sunday May 8th at 9:00 AM. Friends and family are welcome to join in on the fun: wear pink (if you can), bring a $20 donation at the door, and let us know who you’re working out in memory or support of. Event T-shirt pre-sale will be available soon- be on the lookout.
Let’s do this as a community, in honor of our mothers, grandmothers, wives, sisters, daughters, aunts and friends and make a difference together.
