Join Planet Fitness & Support Breast Cancer Research!

fitness, exercise, planet fitness special, mothers day

I love hearing about companies giving back. Paying it forward is the ONLY way to go!!

Planet Fitness, the innovative health club franchise known for its Judgment Free Zone and friendly prices, has a Mother’s Day promotion that gives back in very meaningful ways. From May 8 through May 15, people can join for just $10 down and then $10 a month, and Planet Fitness will donate 100% of the enrollment fee to Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), an independent not-for-profit organization committed to funding scientific research to achieve prevention and a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime.

$10 never meant so much. Not only can people purchase a truly healthy gift for Mom or themselves with a Planet Fitness membership, but they will help raise important money for breast cancer research as well. This is the fourth year Planet Fitness has run this promotion, honoring mothers and all women touched by breast cancer. Over the past three years, Planet Fitness has donated more than $1 million to BCRF towards this worthy cause.

In addition, to honor all moms throughout the country, Planet Fitness is hosting a special “Mom Nom” sweepstakes to find the Best Mom on the Planet. From May 8th – 15th, people can nominate a special mom by visiting www.PlanetFitness.com/MomNoms and one lucky person will be randomly selected to win a year membership for themselves and a mom of their choice.

My Family’s Strength

What makes my family strong? As part of the Strong Families Mama’s Day Our Way campaign I wrote a very honest raw post about what makes my single-parent household strong. I’ve got the heart of a lion and will continue raising my daughter in a warm loving home without a partner muting the naysayers.


From my post: “Too many times I doubted myself and my capacity to be a good mother. Far too often I let these negative thoughts creep into my thoughts, haunting me. Making me question my own strength and resilience. It was often with a shaky hand and self-doubt that I moved forward and persevered as a young single mom.” 

The goal of this campaign is to highlight the moms in our communities who are often marginalized, maligned by politicians and the media.

My post can be read in entirety on the Massachusetts Alliance on Teen Pregnancy  website and also the Strong Families website.

My post talks about what makes my family strong, and I’d love to hear your thoughts. What makes your family strong?
