JDRF

We are proud to support JDRF (Juveniles Diabetes Research Foundation)

This is WIP's 3rd year hosting the WIP Sweat for a Cure JDRF Fundraiser in November. This year we are excited to be hosting the event in our Avon and West Hartford locations.

The workouts will be on Saturday, November 21st in Avon at 8:00 am and 9:00 am, and Sunday, November 22nd at 8:00, 9:00 and 10:00 am in Weha.

The workout is FREE but you must register for the class on your WIP Fitness App or here.

There are 3 ways to give:

1) There will be a donation jar at the gym(s) where you are strongly encouraged to donate.

2) If you are unable to attend the event but would like to donate, you can do so here.

3) There will also be a silent auction "in gym" and online all weekend.
