FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - The Patriots Foundation, together with the Patriots Women's Association, the Bill Belichick Foundation, Rev'd of Patriot Place, Pure Barre of Patriot Place and Sid Yoga, will host "Fitness for Relief" on Monday, October 30 at Gillette Stadium.
This one-of-a-kind experience will allow participants the chance to work out on the Gillette Stadium field, with all proceeds from the event benefiting disaster relief efforts across the United States and Puerto Rico. The funds will be earmarked for International Relief Teams, a nonprofit organization that alleviates the suffering caused by poverty and disaster around the globe by sending volunteer teams and medical supplies to make immediate change for the world's most vulnerable people.
"There have been a significant number of natural disasters that have taken place over the past few months and we want to offer additional support to those in need," said Josh Kraft, President of the New England Patriots Foundation. "We are excited to team with our Patriots Women's Association and the Bill Belichick Foundation to create a fitness event to support disaster relief efforts."
Registration for the event is now open online, where participants can select one of two "Fitness for Relief" options. For a $100 donation, participants will have the opportunity to take part in an hour-long yoga class. For a $150 donation, attendees will have the added option to select a two-class pass that includes either a stationary cycling class or a barre class, followed by a yoga class.
Check in will begin at 6:00 p.m. and the stationary cycling and barre classes will begin at 6:30 p.m. Following the class, there will be a short break that will include a special appearance from Patriots head coach Bill Belichick and Patriots players. The event will conclude with a yoga class, beginning at 8:00 p.m.
"What began as a dream to help communities recover from so many hurricanes has now turned into a reality," said Linda Holliday, Executive Director of the Bill Belichick Foundation. "With the combined partnerships of the Patriots Women's Association, REV'd Cycling, Pure Barre Foxboro, Sid McNary Yoga and our own Bill Belichick Foundation, I couldn't be more excited to have the opportunity to raise funds and help these communities trying to recover."
The stationary cycling class is sold out but the barre and yoga classes are still available. All participants must register online prior to the event. Those who are unable to attend can also make a donation to support the event. To sign up or make a donation to support the cause, visit www.patriots.com/fitnessrelief.
