On Saturday October 29, Fukumoto Fitness hosted its 7th Annual Pumpkin Charity Workout (for Mental Health)!
It was a fantastic time and we wanted to give some photos, videos, and details to show how everyone made a difference and had a great time!
WHY: mental health still carries a stigma. this is not acceptable. many of us and loved ones struggle with mental health issues and often suffer in silence and shame. this event helps bring awareness to this issue. exercise is one excellent way to help manage mental health issues!
WHO: we partner with Anxiety Disorders of Manitoba (ADAM) as they are a small organization that really needs funding. they provide peer support groups and resources to people in Winnipeg to help manage their mental health.
WHAT: dress up in costume, grab a pumpkin, workout, sweat!
Workout Participants: 78
FF staff on site: 6
MONEY RAISED: $2848 (a new record!)
These funds came from entry into event, extra donations for event attendees, donations from FF members who couldn’t attend event, and $5 donation per new person from FF
