Pilates class benefits Susan G. Komen for the Cure

The first Pilates benefit class for Susan G. Komen for the Cure, taught by Susan Dorwart, was Wednesday. A second benefit class will be held Monday, Oct. 27 at the North Tahoe Conference Center in Kings Beach. Call 582-8852 for class information. And visit www.komen.org.

The history of Susan G. Komen for the Cure brings a tear to the eye ” it is a story of a family’s love, support and the death of a sister due to breast cancer. It is a heart-wrenching story, repeated over and over. A story Nancy G. Brinker is dedicated to stopping.

She promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever.

In 1982, that promise became Susan G. Komen for the Cure and launched the global breast cancer movement. Today, Komen for the Cure is the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures.

Susan Dorwart, a 27-year fitness instructor, invites you to take part in the Susan G. Komen for the Cure benefit Pilates class Monday, Oct. 27, 6:15 p.m. at the North Lake Tahoe Convention Center in Kings Beach.

“This month, PhysicalMind in Emeryville (where I was certified as a Pilates instructor) is recognizing Breast Cancer Awareness Month so I thought it would be a good idea to support Susan G. Komen for the Cure here,” said Dorworth. “I have two friends who are breast cancer survivors and I am starting new classes in Kings Beach. I thought it would be a win-win opportunity.”

One hundred percent of the suggested $10 donation will go to the Komen foundation. The hour-long class will enhance over-all well being, ways of movement, strength, flexibility, posture and balance. It is appropriate for any age or fitness level. Please bring a mat. Call 582-8852 for information.
