Working out for women’s rights

Nelson CrossFit gym Power By You is holding a fundraiser for the women's rights organization Pura Vida Foundation.

Nelson CrossFit gym Power By You is holding a fundraiser next month for the Pura Vida Foundation.

The athletes of Power By You are teaming up with the Pura Vida Foundation to fight for women’s rights.

The Pura Vida Foundation is based in Peru and has their own shelter that is the home to exploited and severely abused young women. Their hope is to break down the walls of poverty through education and rehabilitation.

They are reaching out to the athletes of Power By You and Nelson to help raise awareness for this cause, asking you sponsor them to participate in a workout June 12, 12 to 2 p.m., with all proceeds donated to Pura Vida.

To make a donation or most participate in this fundraiser, contact ali@powerbyyou.com. This event is for all levels of fitness.
