Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) October 19, 2010
By combining fitness and generosity, Triangle Adventure Boot Camp and its network of over 200 current and past members are able to give back to the Raleigh and Cary communities. Several campers ran 3.1 miles in support of autism services, and another 30 are exercising in the name of breast cancer awareness.
On October 9th, a team of 20+ runners and walkers represented Triangle Adventure Boot Camp at the Triangle Walk Run for Autism. Their team was made up of past and current members, family and friends, and raised over $2200 for the Autism Society of North Carolina. TABC had T-shirts made for the team members, and made a direct donation based on the number of campers who participated.
With a young daughter with Autism, the director of Triangle Adventure Boot Camp, Jennifer Shevach, considers ASNC to be a very worthy cause. “Our 5 year old was able to spend a week at a residential summer camp supported by the Autism Society of North Carolina. The money raised at the annual Triangle Walk Run for Autism helps send many children to the summer camp each year, as well as provide support in many other areas of these families’ lives,” says Shevach. “We have attended ASNC’s annual conference, many workshops, and created a whole network of families to lean on. None of that would be possible without monetary support.”
In support of breast cancer awareness month, Triangle Adventure Boot Camp will host Charity Week on October 18-22, where all fees collected for the week’s camp will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. “We have already raised nearly $500, and there are still several days to go. With so many women affected by this disease, all of the campers are being very generous,” says Shevach. “Even Kildaire Farms Racquet & Swim Club, the club where our Cary camp is held, has donated this week’s rent. Everyone is stepping up to the plate in support of breast cancer awareness.”
Triangle Adventure Boot Camp is more than just an exercise program; it is a community of like-minded women who have similar goals and a drive to make positive change. This sense of community and belonging makes TABC a very strong network when the members band together to support a worthy cause. “It makes us all feel good to know that we have helped local women and families through our drive to be healthy,” says Shevach. It is a win-win for the campers and the community.
