The 2014 holidays mark the seventh year North Country Hospital (NCH) in Newport has hosted a series of Wellness Center fund-raisers with the help of instructor Sharon Stewart volunteering her time for folks to get a workout on the holidays and help out the hospital’s oncology fund at the same time.
This year, additional instructors are donating their time and providing “Saturday Sweat” to benefit the NCH oncology fund every Saturday morning at 9:30. Remaining classes, with a suggested donation of $10, include yoga with Pat Shover on December 20, and Jacques’ New Year’s Party Cycle on December 27. The holiday program is also accepting non-perishable items, paper products, and toiletries for the Wellness Center food drive.
Mary Hoadley can answer any questions about the upcoming classes. She can be contacted at email@example.com or 334-5566
Christmas Day fitness fusion for oncology classes by donation are set for 7 and 8 a.m. On New Year’s Day, classes are a little later, at 9 and 10 a.m. One hundred percent of donations received for the classes will benefit the hospital’s oncology fund, which in turn helps local cancer patients in need. The suggested donation per class is $10, but all contributions are welcome.
Even if a workout isn’t part of anyone’s plan on Christmas Day and January 1, contributions can be made to the NCH oncology fund, by sending to North Country Hospital, 189 Prouty Drive, Newport, Vermont 05855; or by secure online donation at www.northcountryhospital.org.
