Curves of Qualicum Beach raised more than $3,400 from fundraising efforts to benefit the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
The fundraising efforts took place from April to June 2011. Curves of Qualicum Beach also won this year’s Big Bike Community Spirit award for the second year.
“While we work to improve the lives of the women in the Qualicum Beach area through Curves, we also feel it is important to reach out to others in our community,” said Catherine Morin, owner of Curves of Qualicum Beach. “It’s apparent to us that Heart and Stroke Foundation cares about the lives and the health of the people in our community. We are proud to be able to partner with them to help the Qualicum Beach area.”
According to Morin, one of Curves of Qualicum Beach’s goals is to foster community involvement through charitable efforts.
Curves’ exercise program consists of 30 minutes of exercise three times a week, during which participants work all major muscle groups and receive a great cardio workout. It includes all five components of a complete exercise program: warm-up, strength training, cardio, cool down and stretching.
