Pilates Marathon raises $8,300 for The Breast Cancer Support Fund

On Sunday, November 6th, Carolyn Barr, owner of The Pilates Barr hosted a Pilates "marathon" for students and friends which raised more than $8,300 for the Breast Cancer Support Fund (BCSF).

Twenty people participated in the sold-out four-hour marathon which included three hours of Pilates and one hour of Iyengar yoga.

Carolyn Barr, owner of The Pilates Barr, who was personally touched by the disease when a close friend was diagnosed, felt this was one way she could help. “We were happy to raise money for such a great cause,” said Barr. “I had a friend go through breast cancer treatment who unfortunately didn’t have the financial support she needed, and is still trying to recover financially. People talk about the disease, but they don’t often talk about the costs that go with it. This was our way to give back.”

Following the event, Carolyn hosted an “after-party” for participants, friends of the studio and friends of BCSF, to celebrate their amazing accomplishment with wine, snacks, a silent auction and live jazz.

We want to help women with breast cancer. Not someday. Today. Because the rent is due. Groceries must be bought. Hospital parking is expensive. And lost wages during treatment and recovery means less money for the bills.

So despite millions raised to find a cure, very little priority has been placed on providing much needed financial support for the nearly 26,000 Canadians diagnosed with breast cancer every year.
