Raising money for breast cancer programs in the Hudson Valley and keeping fit are not mutually exclusive! Amy McKenna and her Dream Team Fitspiration group of private coach/trainers decided to make getting fit and helping people affected by breast cancer a dual purpose.

“We are all Team Beachbody coaches. We decided as a team to give back 25% of our commissions from our sales in the month of October. The name of our Team is Dream Team Fitspiration. We all wanted to help support Miles of Hope!” explained Amy McKenna, Orange County coach and trainer.

“Miles of Hope organizes and runs 5 women’s sporting events,” explained Miles of Hope Executive Director Pari Forood:
“Hoops for Hope Basketball Tournament (3/20/16); the 5K Family Fun Run (4/23/16); Goals for Hope Soccer Tournament (8/6/16), The Hudson Valley Community Walk for Breast Cancer (10/2/16); and Hits for Hope Women’s Softball Tournament (10/8/16). We are constantly encouraging everyone, and especially women, to get into shape with us to reduce cancer risk.”

“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as the National Institutes of Health have stated without reservation that maintaining an optimal body weight as determined by body mass index (BMI) and emphasizing more fruits and vegetables in your diet can help to reduce the risk of all cancers,” Ms. Forood elaborated.

“Thank you to everyone who raised money for us in October and a double thank you to those who did it while encouraging people to get fit!” said Ms. Forood.
