Work Out & Give Back

Join the Associate Board for an afternoon of giving back. First, we’ll sweat it out at a Pure Barre River North class at 12:15 p.m. All class fees will be donated to the Associate Board, so you’ll be working out and raising money for the Infant Special Care Unit at Evanston Hospital. Afterwards, we'll head over to 30 East Huron St. for brunch and blanket-making! We’ll make no-sew fleece blankets for babies in the Infant Special Care Unit to use during their stay in the hospital and to take home with them. No experience or sewing ability is needed and supplies will be provided. Please feel free to bring your favorite brunch dish to share! Click here to register for the 12:15 p.m. Pure Give Donation Class on Sunday, May 7.
