February’s fitness challenge is now officially in the rear-view mirror. Aside from the ongoing fitness benefits, we have an exciting update to pass along. The 10,000 Kettlebells for Parkinson’s challenge raised $3,403.33 which will support Parkinson’s research.

Not only do we think that is fantastic, but the Royal University Hospital Foundation also thinks it is fantastic!

On behalf of our family, I would like to say a huge Thank You to everybody who participated and everybody who donated to the RUH Foundation. We were so pleased by how well this was received. Although the 10,000 Kettlebell challenge is done, you can still make donations to the RUH Foundation. If interested in making a donation, please visit www.ruhf.org or call 1-306-655-1984.

I have heard from many participants who continue to work away on one fitness project or another. A number of us are shifting now into sport-specific training for summer events. I can personally say that this is the best shape I have ever been in rolling into the summer season!

Thanks again, everyone. Have a great summer! Tune in on Mondays for the weekly blogs – you can even sign up to get them via email.

Best wishes,
