A very special thank you to everyone who attended our special stroller boot camp class and also who donated! It was a huge success! We raised $1687 in this class alone. A final number will be posted soon! Thanks for joining us for our special class in honour of little Philip McLachlan who has a rare disorder called Mastocytosis. In addition to mastocytosis, Philip also suffers from multiple severe food allergies putting him at high risk of anaphylaxis.
Philip and his entire family, Mom, Dad and big sister, Alex, used to attend stroller classes 3x/week and were very involved with Fit4Females. In fact, his family has been with Fit4Females for more than 4 years (little Philip was in Shannon’s belly working out until 2 days before delivery – check out the video below). They are no longer able to attend Stroller Classes because of his severe food allergies and Masto Disorder. His mother, Shannon, is one of the strongest people I know. In order to celebrate what an extraordinary little boy Philip is, we are going to celebrate Rare Disease Day and have a “Philip friendly” Stroller Boot Camp class Wednesday February 29th @ 9:30am at Dofasco Park Recreation Centre. Please arrive early if you are new to class.
Please tell everyone you know, post it on Facebook, put a flyer up at your school, etc. If you cannot make the class, a donation of any amount can be made to Fit4Females.
If you are already registered all you need to do is show up as usual, BUT please refrain from bringing any food into the class and only juice or water. Snacks will be provided that day for your little one:). Anyone is welcome, with or without a little one.
Drop in cost is $10 (min donation) with all monies being donated to the MastoKids organization in honour of Philip. If you are new to Fit4Females please email me in advance for the registration package. You can donate to Fit4Females even if you are not able to make the class.
To add in the fun please dress in polka dots to show your support that “spots are cool”:)
*As an added BONUS there will be a raffle at the end of class for Toronto Raptors tickets and a gift certificate to LaSaghett Restaurant!!!!!* Make sure you bring your toonies…raffle tickets will be $2 each or 3 for $5.
Check out the video of Shannon boxing just 2 days before delivery
