June 2014: Brooke Bell of Total Woman Gym + Spa, a Girls on the Run 5K sponsor and host of the Girls on the Run 12-Hour Run-a-Thon
Local sponsors play an important role in helping Girls on the Run thrive. To thank them for their efforts, we periodically highlight different sponsors. This month's featured sponsor is Total Woman Gym + Spa, a Girls on the Run sponsor and the host of the Girls on the Run 12-Hour Run-a-Thon on Saturday, June 21. We recently caught up with Brooke Bell, General Manager of the San Jose gym.
How did you first hear about Girls on the Run?
A Total Woman Gym member's daughter was involved with the program last year.
What motivated you to become a Girls on the Run sponsor?
Girls on the Run has an excellent reputation, and we think it's an important cause.
What's the best part about being a Girls on the Run sponsor?
We loved seeing all the young girls dressed up, smiling and being together as teams at the 5K.
Two instructors from Total Woman Gym + Spa leading the girls at the Girls on the Run 5K in U-Jam.
What was it like being part of the Girls on the Run 5K again this year?
Awesome! We had two employees who participated in their first 5K ever that day. It was exciting to watch. We also had two instructors from Total Woman Gym + Spa lead the girls in U-Jam up on stage after the 5K, which was also a lot of fun.
Why did you decide to host the Girls on the Run 12-Hour Run-a-Thon?
We want to give back to the organization! We also love to host events and provide the participants an opportunity to train for their upcoming race in 2015.
