It is October, which is a very emotional month for us. A huge inspiration in my life was my stepmother, Renae. She was the one that encouraged me to go for my degree in Exercise Science, she supported me in my first gym, and she saw potential in this odd thing I was doing. Yes, it was the infancy of DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training.
Sadly, Renae never got to see what DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training would grow into. Almost 20 years ago, she was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer. She was given six months to live, but Renae would have none of it! Always a fighter she made the decision she wasn’t going to go without a strong fight. Not only did she fight with incredible bravery for eight years, she was very active in the breast cancer community.
Running educational events for women and families, working with doctors, and doing everything possible to get the word out, she never was a victim!
Renae worked tirelessly to run fundraisers and education for everyone! She even gave me my first speaking opportunity 16 years ago and one of my greatest honors to date!
That is why I believe honoring her spirit, not the illness. Renae would never want us to talk about her in terms of the disease, but how she was so inspired to help others deal and learn about how to make themselves as strong as possible.
It was this inspiration that originally gave rise to our Pink Ultimate Sandbags (hard to believe we have been raising money for Breast Cancer for 7 years!).
That is why for ALL the month of October you can not only save 25% on ANY Ultimate Sandbag or workout program, but when you invest in an Ultimate Sandbag you will get TWO great programs as well! We are giving you such great incentives because a portion of all proceeds will go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation that has an A+ charity rating. Something we want to do to honor those that are strong in ways we could only imagine.
I hope you will help us by using coupon code “save” HERE and even if you don’t, I hope you will join us for a special fundraiser announcement towards the last week of October. It will be a fun way to really get inspired!
