Once upon a time, you could only purchase a pink ribbon to show your support for Breast Cancer Awareness. Now, each October, we're presented with a plethora of products that aim to benefit Breast Cancer charities and research organizations. From beautiful cashmere sweaters to indulgent bubble baths, and even fragrant floral arrangements, the BCA product offering has expanded to include a number of tempting little luxuries. It's never been more rewarding to support such an important cause.
It's a scary thought, but Breast Cancer is currently the 2nd leading cause of death in women (in North America) and has touched many of our lives. One way we can help prevent this disease is to get/stay fit and active, and pilates is a fantastic way to do so.
Mark your calendar (no excuses, you've just been given proper notice!) for October and join Shape Magazine for a Pilates for Pink session at a studio near you. Supporting BCA whilst slimming down for that scandalous Halloween costume you've got set aside- Brilliant, wouldn't you say?
