Must RSVP to attend: I am hosting an event, with the generous help of Solid Body Fitness, for my Cousin's wife, Kara Richardson Whitely, author of Gorge. She will be doing a book signing/reading, a workout at my favorite box Solid Body Fitness and social hour after. We will also have healthy food/beverage vendors onsite. Music will be provided by the awesome D.J. Scottie Dog.
This is an opportunity to meet & hang out with one of my favorite people. Kara really puts herself out there in Gorge. She talks so openly about her addiction with food and the personal struggles she's faced. Cheryl Strayed, Author of Wild, calls Kara's book "fearless & beautiful just like her...".
You can choose to participate in the workout or cheer us on!! No pressure.
Admission: Donate a new or gently used pair of comfortable/athletic shoes. St Francis House in Boston will be the recipient of the donations. A majority of their guests are men (75%) and woman (25%) sizes 10-14. Does your husband or boyfriend or guy friends have new/gently used shoes they're not using?? Grab them! They will take woman's shoes too. If you don't have shoes you can make a cash donation at the door.
