Hosting a boot camp fundraiser raises awareness and boasts a healthier mindset to take care of ourselves...
Hillsboro, OR (PRWEB) September 13, 2013
On Saturday, September 28th at 8 a.m., owner of the popular Hillsboro gym, Fit Body Boot Camp found on the west side of the Portland metropolis area, Angel Martin with friend and fitness enthusiast Alison Pedersen, will throw a charity boot camp fundraiser in order to support two great causes, the MS Society and Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
Hillsboro Fit Body Boot Camp’s fundraiser will be held at Rock Creek Park between Cornelius Pass Road and NW 185th Ave. Registration for the charity boot camp is limited to the first 75 people who register and the fee to participate is a minimum donation of $20, but additional donations are certainly welcomed as all proceeds are going to benefit the both the MS Society and Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
Martin, who is a huge health and wellness advocate, says she wanted to throw this boot camp fundraiser so members of the community could have a chance to experience an effective fat-burning boot camp workout and support two very important causes at the same time.
She explains, “Hosting a boot camp fundraiser raises awareness and boasts a healthier mindset to take care of ourselves. I choose to support The MS Society because I was diagnosed with the disease about seven years ago. I’d like to demonstrate to others that even those who may have a disease do not have to ‘suffer’ from it. Alison chose Susan G Komen as this is her sixth year participating in the 3-Day for a Cure because walking 60 miles is not just a statement; it’s also a journey. Just like MS, Breast cancer shows no discrimination... young, old, male, female.”
Living with multiple sclerosis herself, Martin knows firsthand the struggles that come with being diagnosed with the disease. Through years of staying active and eating a healthy diet, Martin was able to control her condition without medication and hopes to be an inspiration to others who might be suffering from a serious medical condition or just wants to be a healthier person in general.
She says, “You see, I live with MS (multiple sclerosis), and what that means is this… If I don't stay healthy and active I can possibly go blind, not walk, and have to stay on medication for the rest of my life.”
Getting the Hillsboro community healthy and active is a major priority for Martin, and that’s one of the main reasons why she decided to open a Fit Body Boot Camp in the area. She felt that opening up a group personal training center was the perfect solution to helping more locals reach their weight loss and fitness goals.
