Westlake Village, CA (PRWEB) September 20, 2011
Today, Total Woman Gym and Day Spa, a premiere full-service women’s-only gym and spa with eleven locations across Southern California, announced that it would be partnering with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) in its Total Woman of the Year contest.
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is the world’s leader in the search for a cure for cystic fibrosis. The Foundation funds more research into the disease and its treatments than any other organization. About 30,000 people in the U.S. and 70,000 worldwide have CF, a disease that causes persistent lung infections and premature death. Ten million Americans are symptomless carriers of a defective CF gene. For each nomination CFF generates for the Total Woman contest, the Gym will donate one dollar to the Foundation.
“We are delighted at the opportunity to support an organization as important as the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The disease affects more than 30,000 in the U.S. alone. If we can help raise funds, while simultaneously honoring some special women, it’s a win-win situation,” said Karen Joy, Director of sales and marketing for Total Woman Gym and Day Spa. “We both share a commitment to health and wellness and it’s our hope, that through this alliance, we can contribute to a great cause.”
“We at the CFF know a lot of great women who deserve recognition for balancing work, family, heath, and giving back,” said Chanda Fuller, Development Director at the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. “We can’t wait to start nominating!”
The winner will receive a year gym membership to Total Woman Gym and Day Spa, as well a year of spa treatments.
Ms. Fuller added that the CFF and Total Woman partnership was part of a series of new initiatives aimed at driving fundraising for Cystic Fibrosis. The CFF’s next event is its Stair Climb for Life, where participants climb 50 stories to the top of a skyscraper in Downtown Los Angeles on December 3rd and help raise awareness for the disease.
