There will be NO Group classes @ Pilates Plus on Saturday May 4th.
In lieu of classes I would love for you to join me in this walk for the "CELEBRATE SOUND" Don't Walk in Silence™ this is a 3 mile walk to support Sertoma.
This fund- and awareness-raising walk event was created to help promote hearing health in our communities. I have created my own team called Pilates Plus and want you to be a part of it. Great things can be accomplished when people work together, all it will take is a couple hours of your time. I promise we will have fun!

Half of funds raised stay with the sponsoring Sertoma club for support of projects in this community; the other half help fund Sertoma's national hearing health mission projects. In just the past 10 years, Sertoma has:
o Awarded $880,000 in college scholarships to undergraduates who are deaf and hard-of-hearing, and to students pursuing graduate education in speech-language pathology or audiology;
o Made $1 million worth of grants to local nonprofits that provide hearing healthcare in communities across the nation
o Provided an additional $150,000 in professional education grants to hearing health and speech pathology professionals continuing their education
o Delivered educational and awareness-building noise-induced hearing loss prevention programs to more than 250 communities.
In just two years, Sertoma's newest action campaign has brought information and education on looping into at least 40 communities. Looping is a technology that greatly improves public accessibility for people using assistive hearing devices.
Thank you again for your generous support of our efforts.
