THE STORY:

What an incredible night on The Blue Bridge with over 100 of you! Our hearts are full, and we hope you had a great experience with us tucking outside, on a bridge, under the stars.  

Big thank you to Lole Grand Rapids for sponsoring the event, Purple Community for helping plan the event, and Malamiah Juice Bar for the juice donation.

We could not have had any success without those participated and donated. A sincere THANK YOU from your Pure Barre Grand Rapids team, for a beautiful night we will not forget.

One more week left in this challenge, and Week #4 Bonus Challenge winning team will receive $1500 donation from corporate PLUS guest teaching from founder of Pure Barre, Carrie Dorr!

In anticipation of a win, top 15 (in dollar amount) donors between 9/17 2pm - 9/22 noon ET will have the VIP invitation to take the class with Carrie!

At the end of the challenge (Sept 22, 2014), Pure Barre Corporate will match the donations of the top three studios (up to $5,000 for the first place studio and up to $2500 for the 2nd and 3rd place studios)!

If you are interested in becoming a team member, then "Join Our Team"!  Top 3 team members will win "Pure Bucks" from our studio (matching up to $450 worth of classes for the first place team member and matching up to $225 worth of classes for the 2nd and 3rd place team members)!

Van Andel Institute located in downtown Grand Rapids, MI is committed to improving the health and enhancing the lives of current and future generations through disease research and science education. The Institute has led the expansion of the life science industry in this region. Collaborative partnerships among world-class health care, research, and educational organizations have led to dramatic growth in the life sciences sector in the region, making Grand Rapids a career destination choice in this area.

Purple CommunityⓇ is a grassroots fundraising program at Van Andel Institute. Through peer-to-peer fundraising and cause marketing programs, people just like you turn their passions into support for the work to fight cancer, Parkinson’s and other neurodegenerative diseases.

Purple Community is uniquely you. Whatever your passion is – mountain biking, quilting, food, or fitness – you can use it to help them accelerate research that will impact the lives of family and friends fighting disease. Every dollar we raise goes directly to the laboratories where scientists are searching for answers. They don’t keep a single penny to pay the bills or keep the lights on. Whether we raise $50 or $5,000, our efforts will have a direct impact on research and discovery at Van Andel Institute. #WhatsYourPurple
