On Sunday October 7th, Giant Step Services held their first annual “Circle for a Cause” fundraiser to benefit Strength for Life raising $3200 for the non profit.
Strength for Life provides FREE exercise classes and wellness retreats for cancer patients/survivors on Long Island. Giant Step Services is a community based comprehensive vocational/independent living program for post-secondary students with learning challenges located in Hauppauge, NY.
The Giant Step program is designed to maximize each young adult’s growth by utilizing supportive, individualized approach to movement from home or boarding school to community and work or post-secondary academics. The students went above and beyond reaching out to family and friends and walking laps to show their support of the Strength for Life programs that promote “fighting cancer with exercise.”
For every $250 donation a cancer patient/survivor is sponsored for a wellness retreat participating in an overnight stay, a day full of classes (Zumba, Tai Chi, Yoga, Strength Training, Reiki and Meditation) and fabulous guest speakers presenting on alternative therapies and nutrition. Giant Step Services sponsored 13 new survivors to attend a wellness retreat in 2013. Kudos to them!
Strength for Life celebrated it's 7th Wellness Retreat in September and looks forward to the January 2013 retreat. Testimonial reviews can be found on Great NonProfits , read where your donation dollars are going.
