Come Join the Party!!!

We will be holding a 5 hour "Aerobathon" at the Sammamish Club on Saturday, June 30th to benefit the non-profit, Art with Heart. This Seattle based charity uses art, or therapeutic journals to help kids in crisis- whether they are battling cancer, had a death or divorce in the family, or are having difficulty expressing themselves.  These journals are phenomenally illustrated by some of the top artists and have helped over 60,000 kids locally as well as around the world.

But most of all, the reason this is so important is the person heading this project, John McKinnon, is a true inspiration himself. His story and his ability to lead and inspire others is note worthy, and in true fashion, instead of celebrating his 50th birthday by receiving gifts, he is chosing to give back to the community by leading this Aerobathon! His goal is to raise $10,000!
Classes from 7am-9am will be for Sammamish Club members only, but from 9am-12p the club will be open to the public where there will be a range of activities to choose from:

9-10am: Kickboxing
10-11am- Zumba and Cardio Dance
11-12pm- Pilates, Yoga and Stretch
