#SpasPushingLimits is a group of enthusiastic and highly motivated spa professionals who wants to challenge themselves by participating in moderate to difficult fitness events, while raising funds for varies non-profit organizations and charities!
This year we are participating in the Half Ironman 70.3 Boulder on August 4th. We have teammmates racing individually and teammates partnering by forming relay teams. For our fundraiser, we are proud to partner with Wellness for Cancer, a non-profit organization that is created to facilitate self care and better lifestyle choices for individuals who have been touched by cancer.
A touching letter from Julie Bach, founder of our charity, Wellness for Cancer:
“There is not anyone these days who have not been touched in some way by cancer. And while the spa industry is full of individuals who tend to the "being" of a person as they heal to well-being, we are an industry with very few formalized workplace wellness. Who may I ask, is taking care of the individuals personally on a healing journey within our industry? It is with the utmost of compassion and recognition that we have to take care of our own, that I have embarked on this very important project "taking care of our own" My intention is to create a fund to help send individuals to spa retreats for the spa industry to take care of them in a meaningful way. I do hope that you hear this action - as a person who would like some assistance, to a company who wants to donate, to a retreat that wants to give back. I thank you and look forward to collectively coming together to help our own”.
