CHECK IN FOR CHARITY

Thanks to your check-in's for the month we raised $30.00 for Iron for Iron Girls



April's check in for charity is the March of Dimes. The mission of the March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. Premature birth is the #1 killer of babies.

When you are at the gym in April check in on social media and use the hash tags #checkinforcharity and #barbells4babies, to add to our donation.

 CLICK HERE to learn more about the March of Dimes.

The March of Dimes did a lot for us when Chloe was in the NICU for 21 days following her early entry into this world. It is a charity near and dear to my heart. Please remember to check in this month to support the March of Dimes.
