Club Pilates Partners with Miracles for Kids; Hosts Month-Long Fundraiser for Local Critically-Ill Children and Families in Need
California Studios to Support Non-Profit Throughout July; Corporate Office to Match Total Donations
COSTA MESA, Calif. - July 5, 2018 // PRNewswire // - Formed under a shared vision that all children should be given the opportunity to live healthy and thriving lives, Club Pilates, the nation's largest premium boutique Pilates franchise, announced today its partnership with Miracles for Kids, a California-based non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of critically-ill children and their families in need. Throughout the month of July, Club Pilates studios across California are teaming up to make a difference and support the charity in a variety of ways.
From July 1 – 31, the brand will donate $30 to Miracles for Kids for every new member who joins a Club Pilates studio in California. In addition to signing up for new memberships, California residents can also support the cause by purchasing kids' t-shirts from their local studio with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the charity.
"It's an honor to partner with Miracles for Kids. I've seen the heart-warming impact this incredible organization has on families going through terrible hardships," said Anthony Geisler, CEO of Club Pilates. "It's important we maintain this support, so these children are given the opportunity to regain their health and flourish in life."
Club Pilates is also taking a hands-on approach to making fitness more accessible to everyone, including critically-ill children and their families, by participating in the Friday, July 13 session of the Miracles for Kids Surf & Paddle Summer Camp Program held at Bolsa Chica State Beach in Huntington Beach, California from 9:00am to 3:00pm. Select Club Pilates instructors will lead the warm up portion of the camp, which is designed to bring healthy outdoor fun, environmental awareness, and water activities lead by expert instructors from Waves of Impact to patients and their siblings whose lives are all affected by a life-threatening illness. In a culmination of the July Partnership, Club Pilates corporate office will match the total funds raised by the California studios.
Miracles for Kids families not only face the possibility of losing their child to a life-threatening illness, but also fight bankruptcy, depression, hunger and homelessness. The nonprofit is one of the only organizations on the West Coast dedicated to alleviating these stressors. Since launching in 2002, Miracles for Kids has served more than 1,000 at risk families with children in treatment at leading children's hospitals across California - UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital, Children's Hospital Los Angeles, Mattel Children's UCLA and CHOC Children's.
