Get Fit to Help
Flash mobs, fitness, and fundraising align with Fit 4 the Cause (fit4thecause.org), a new Thousand Oaks-Used nonprofit that raises money for local health-related causes through group exercise programs. Energetic, calorie-burning events pop up in malls, parks, parking lots, hotels, schools, and businesses, led by local fitness instructors and accompanied by live music or tunes provided by DJs.
“We raise money for organizations such as the Cancer Support Community, American Diabetes Association, Notional Multiple Sclerosis Society, and to individuals with health-related hardships,” says Fit 4 The Cause founder Cindy Rakowitz, and Agoura Hills publicist and a certified group fitness instructor.
The next event is on November 8 at Garden of Yoga (gardenofyoga.com) in Woodland Hills. Proceeds go to the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America.
