Description

Hi everyone!

Join me and my favorite fitness instructor, Alexa Aiello as she leads us in a high-energy workout class. There will be lots of awesome music and all fitness levels are welcome. What a great way to sweat a little bit right before the holidays!

Tickets are available here in advance, and can also be purchased at the door, starting at 8:00 am.

All proceeds from this event will benefit my Boston Marathon Fundraising. As a Utica native, I have always found that my hometown is one of the most supportive and charitable communities. I am so excited to be home for the holidays and so grateful to Studio 55 and Alexa for letting me put on this event.

In 2018, I will be running the Boston Marathon for Brigham and Women's Hospital Stepping Strong Center that was founded after the Boston Marathon bombings. Gillian Reny was high school senior who was out with her family anticipating her sister's debut across the 2013 Boston marathon. Gillian almost lost her life and her legs in the explosions. She was rushed to Brigham and Women’s Hospital where a team of doctors and nurses, saved her legs. She was one of many critically injured patients that was treated at the Brigham that day. From their experience, the Reny family discovered that although traumatic injuries make up a large percentage of hospital visits, there is little funding to support treatment and research. This motivated them to establish the Gillian Reny Stepping Strong Center for Trauma Innovation at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. I spent some time working at BWH after college, and was fortunate to learn so much about Gillian’s story, the organization and the impact that Stepping Strong is already making in the lives of both military heroes and civilians with traumatic injuries.
