It’s official!  The 10,000 Kettlebells for Parkinsons challenge is a go for 2018.  You can read the back-story from the links on the nav bar above, but here’s the main idea:  This is a fitness/wellness challenge to promote physical fitness AND to support research into Parkinson’s Disease.  February (at least here in Canada) can be a cold, bleak month with not a lot going on.  Plus, it is usually a short month.

Here’s what we suggest:

  • Use the month of February to take up a new fitness/wellness challenge, or to ramp up one you are already doing.
  • Do your challenge throughout the month.  Be sure to get some coaching and encouragement.
  • When February is over, we invite you to make a donation to the DR. ALI RAJPUT ENDOWMENT FOR PARKINSON’S DISEASE AND MOVEMENT DISORDERS RESEARCH, one of the fundraising campaigns of the Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
  • Read through our blog posts to learn about this project and find out the inspiration behind it.

What we have heard from many of our participants is that the fitness aspect of the challenge did not really end. . . even though February came and went, they had developed a new mindset.  And the hospital foundation was very pleased to have received several thousand dollars in new support.

So, thanks to everyone who has participated and (we hope) is participating again!  Here’s to another great fitness February!!
