Last month, Energy Personal Training and Pilates Studio brought together 175 participants in five different pilates classes to raise money for the Cayman Islands Cancer Society.
Pilates for Pink was first introduced last October in an effort to raise breast cancer awareness in the community. Colleen Brummer, Energy’s owner, pilates instructor and a breast cancer survivor herself, was inspired by the enthusiasm and support of all the attendees.
‘Last year we had to limit the numbers to 20 people per class because of space limitations. This year, the Hyatt Regency Grand Cayman was kind enough to offer us a much larger space – it was amazing to see almost 40 people in each class working out for such a great cause,’said Ms. Brummer.
Through the donations of the participants and with the help of the corporate sponsors (Mourant, Genesis Trust, Scotts Equipment, Kirk Office Equipment, Hard Rock Café, Island Heritage, Greenlight Re, IMS and Spin 94.9) the event raisef $5,200 for the Cancer Society.
The money will be used to help provide financial assistance to cancer patients and their families.
‘It is such a wonderful thing to be able to complete chemotherapy treatments on island, close to your family and friends,’ added Mrs. Brummer, ‘and to know that there is an agency like the Cancer Society that provides such an amazing service just makes things less stressful for the patient.’
