The Bar Method in Rye Brook is hosting a Rally for the Cure® event on October 26, 2013. Rally for the Cure is a grass roots program that was created to empower people to take action in the fight against breast cancer by educating women about the disease and reminding them to get their annual breast cancer screening to ensure early detection through volunteer organized golf, tennis and social events. More than 2 million people have participated in Rally events across the nation since its inception in 1996. This marks the 2nd year the Bar Method Rye Brook has rallied against breast cancer.
The Bar Method Rye Brook will have 100 participants registered for the Rally event and invites the public to take part. The day’s activities will include one-hour bar classes at 7:15am, 8:30am, 9:45am, & 11am - as well as a group balloon release with special messages to loved ones scheduled at 8:15am. These bar method classes create a uniquely lean body by combining muscle-shaping isometrics, physical therapy and internal training into 60 minutes of transformation. Prizes will be awarded to the best dressed ‘pink lady’ at the event, and each participant will receive a goody bag with important breast health information and other Rally items plus a subscription to a select Condé Nast magazine such as SELF, Golf Digest and Bon Appétit.
“We are proud to host our 2nd Rally for the Cure event. The event is a fun way for us to bring together our members and the community to support an important cause while getting an incredible workout with friends,” states Sara Giller, owner of the Bar Method Rye Brook.
Since its start in 1996, the Rally program has touched over 2 million people with the important message that early detection saves lives. In addition to mobilizing people behind the promise to end breast cancer, Rally events have generated over $70 million for Susan G. Komen for the Cure®.
”The success of Rally is attributed to volunteer ambassadors like, Sara Giller who have said ‘Yes we can have a Rally at our studio’. It is her enthusiasm, energy and support we value in our commitment to support Susan G. Komen,” says Diane Perillo, Program Manager, Rally for the Cure.
Since 1996 Komen has received over $70 million from fundraising activities at Rally events to help fund life-saving breast cancer research, education, screening and treatment programs. Rally for the Cure® is run by Condé Nast and is based in Wilton, Connecticut.
