New York, NY (PRWEB) June 8, 2005
Manhattan fitness trainer, Katrina McKenna, has taken a big step in her vow to help defeat diabetes. As the owner of MetamorFitness, a Manhattan fitness consulting business, she put together a team of seven riders to join this year's Tour de Cure bicycle ride in New York City. Katrina has achieved her individual goal of raising $1000 for the cause.
The American Diabetes Association holds this annual bike event to raise funds for research, education and advocacy. The ADA tries to get it's riders to raise a minimum of $100. Katrina set a personal goal of ten times that and, with the generous help of her friends, family, colleagues, and a special corporate sponsorship from WinMill Software (http://www.winmill.com), has just achieved it.
The rest of her team has raised an average of $200 per rider. But Katrina isn't satisfied there. Her business, MetamorFitness has committed to match the first $200 of each of her team membersÂ fund-raising efforts (including her own).
To motivate people to help reach MetamorFitnessÂ goal of $1000 per team member, MetamorFitness is running a contest. For each $10 a person donates to any team member, they get a chance to win two free fitness training sessions. In addition, everyone who donates any amount to a member of our team can get a special free report: ÂThe Truth about Weight Loss and Diabetes: What You Should Know Even if You Don't Have DiabetesÂ.
