Fun, Fit & Feminine – Thursday, January 28 – 6 – 9 pm
 
A wise woman once said that “a good friend is like a good bra – hard to find, supportive, comfortable, always lifts you up, makes you look better, and always close to your heart.”  Well, West Stride is here to help you find that “good friend,” and offer a little something extra, with our latest Fun, Fit & Feminine Ladies’ Night on Thursday, January 28!  Here’s a little taste of what’s in store:
 
– Professional sports bra FITting by (and for) West Stride women
– Wine, hors d’oeuvres and sweet treats
– Information on women’s training programs from 5k to the marathon
– Gift bags with goddies from Moving Comfort, Nike and more
– Free massages to help you relax
 
As an added bonus, a portion of the proceeds will benefit Atlanta Memorial Park, which was particularly affected by the floods this fall.  Please RSVP kenan.preston@weststride.com to ensure yourself a gift bag and to help us plan how much food and wine we’ll need.  Don’t miss this fun event with (and for) the “girls”!
