'Pink' workout helps support research

I would like to thank all who participated in the Pilates for Pink workout. We raised several thousand dollars for the Breast Cancer Research Fund. Our community truly pulled together for those warriors fighting to find a cure for breast cancer. Even more importantly, people opened their hearts and showed the power of the human spirit.

The room was filled to capacity and all who came were embraced by the strength of others. An extra nod of thanks to Jamestown Hardware for donating all the pink balloons, McQuade's Market for the beautiful bouquets of pink roses for our warriors celebrating life, the Jamestown Recreation Department for donating their time and our location, Janet Kirk for sharing her sound system, Vanessa Wurman for pulling through with the wireless microphone system, Rachael and Lisa Bryer and Joan Briggs for donating all the bottled waters! What an amazing community Jamestown is!
