Pilates4Care – Supporting Others
Pilates Helps You to Help Others
Each year Pilates4Life and its members raise money to support the great work done by so many of the charities in our community. Pilates helps us, so we can help others. Each year we aim to do something different, something memorable to raise awareness and encourage as many as possible to join us.
Lynda Jackson Macmillan CentreIn memory of Anne Walder who experienced, first-hand, the services and care that the Lynda Jackson Centre provide to cancer sufferers and their carers at Mount Vernon Hospital. A number of our members have also had their own reasons to thank the centre, so it is especially important to us.
Nystagmus NetworkIn memory of Tom Ousby who lost his life tragically at the age of 19 in Magaluf, Spain. He suffered with Nystagmus – a condition that makes it difficult for the eyes to remain focussed, so everyday tasks such as reading and driving become very challenging. We were inspired by his desire to make the most of his life and exceed expectations.
This year we held an event to bring together all of the Pilates4Life members for one, giant Pilates class.More than 100 Pilates practitioners (‘Mat Mates’?) joined together to prepare and perform a choreographed routine set to the music of a classic track.See the Results
