BODYJAM EDMONTON

GoodLife Fitness Edmonton Brewery Club 287

Bodyjammers UNITE!

This summer, BODYJAM EDMONTON is partnering with UNICEF, GOODLIFE FITNESS, LES MILLS and WORKOUT FOR WATER to help the people of Ethiopia gain access to clean water! 

**Did you know - in some villages in Ethiopia, access to clean water is a FOUR HOUR walk away?  Just imagine walking 4 HOURS to fill a water bottle when you're thirsty!***  

We want to help!  Our goal is to raise the MOST IN CANADA by July 31st!  All proceeds will go to complete the Lega and Yelam Gej multi-village solar-powered water system in the Amhara Region thereby turning that 4 hour walk into a less than 10 minute one

Additionally, the top fundraising club in Canada will win a guest appearance in August from Bodyjam's Program Director and Choreographer - Gandalf Archer Mills!  #GetGtoYEG

You can fundraise with us, donate, and dance with us to help the people of Ethiopia!  We will be throwing a fundraising party JULY 20th (Watch our social media @BodyjamEdmonton for details) and celebrating SHOWCASE DAY JULY 22!

Nat's Workout For Water message! Donate to our GLOBAL initiative!

I have a very soft spot for children. If you notice the charities I (and my team) promote, they most always have to do with underprivileged kids - whether it be due to economic situations or physical impediments. I've volunteered with kids in many forms - choirs & camps mainly - and I've probably even babysat your kids on occasion. I love kids. 

Earlier this year, my dance team and I fundraised just under $2000 for Spin4Kids: An initiative to help Canadian kids with disabilities, autism, and physical impediments get active. Additionally, last winter, we collected toys for Santa's anonymous for underprivileged children in our Edmonton community. 


Today, Bodyjam Edmonton and I are working towards helping kids in Ethiopia spend more time in school by giving them WATER -- Something you and I take for granted. We can just go to a tap to get it. Easy.

In the Amhara region of Ethiopia, it can take up to 4 hours of physically exhausting labour to retrieve...and it's not even 100% clean water. We want to help change that. We want to help build 2 solar powered water systems! HELP US!!! Join our cause, spread our link, share our passion.

In addition, our dance team has an AMAZING opportunity if we fundraise the most in Canada to have a class taught by a New Zealand Les Mills Program Director. We would LOVE to give this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to our members!

This photo is one of my favourite moments from when my choir performed for a school in Okaukuejo Namibia in 2007. We brought them little kits of TOOTHPASTE and school supplies (which was something super small for us) and LOOK at the joy on their faces. It's the little things that bring the most joy, so even if you can donate $5, $10, $25, or $100.... it's SOMETHING and it MEANS something!!!


Thanks for your support!!! www.workoutforwater.org/fundraisers/bodyjamyeg

Wow!!!!! Week 1 Update

We are one full week into our campaign and we are just FLOORED by the incredible amount of support in Edmonton and beyond!!!!  Already in our first week we are $2395 closer to helping Ethiopians in the Amhara region gain access to clean water.

We are truly inspired and empowered by you all.  Let's crush week 2!!

Water is often taken for granted, yet 2.1 billion people around the world lack access to clean drinking water, and nearly half of these people live in sub-Saharan Africa. In many sub-Saharan African villages, the burden of retrieving safe water falls on women and children, preventing them from attending school and pursuing economic opportunities.

If you are just joining us, it's not too late to donate!  We are still fundraising up a storm and have some fun events planned including our FUNDRAISING PARTY on July 20th at 1:30pm Brewery Goodlife!!!!  All donations are your ticket into the event, but donations of $25+ get you into our prize draws!

Follow us on the socials @Bodyjam Edmonton for more updates and announcements!


Thank you all for your support thus far and please keep spreading the jam love!
