A new goal for #STWM – to rock the Scotiabank Charity Challenge

STWM

Once again this year I’ll be racing the Canada Running Series Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Half Marathon, but this year I’m upping my goals – not by trying to rock a PB, although yes, I will give it a try, but by participating in the Scotiabank Charity Challenge fundraising for the YWCA Toronto.

The Scotiabank Charity Challenge unites the spirit of runners with a unique fundraising program to help create a stronger future for young people and build vibrant communities.

In 2017, participants raised $3.5 million for 199 community charities through the Scotiabank Charity Challenge at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon. This has a huge impact.

As many of you know my mum, Jill Rumble, was the CEO of the YWCA Hamilton, before passing away 14 years ago of ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease). The YWCA played a huge role in my life growing up – not only keeping my sister and I busy as kids through swimming, dance, and gymnastics, but gave us our first jobs as camp councillors and life guards, but most importantly created my foundational love of fitness which had direct impact on my profession now and opening Tribe. I remember in high school waking up early on Saturday morning and going with my mum to aerobics class. Like 90s style aerobics high four-count beats, grapevines, box steps, and lots of clapping. I loved it.

Through the Scotiabank Charity Challenge, the YWCA of Toronto is hoping to reach their goal of raising $25,000 for programs that will help women and girls triumph over the barriers to equality and to make a better, more equitable world for us all.

Here’s how you can help me:

  1. Donate! Any amount of money to support this cause close to my heart is greatly appreciated. Skip your morning coffee for a couple days and help us out. Click here to donate. Now I realize it might not be that simple for some of you so, here are some other options.
  2. Share this post! You’ve got friends and followers, please let them know why this cause is important and share away.
  3. Run and fundraise yourself. More hands (or sneakers in this case) make for light work. Check out the list of official charities here. Create an account and fundraise for a charity that’s important to you.

Thanks for supporting in any way to you. See you at the start line!

5 Tips To Succeed At Your Tribe 14-Class Challenge.

challenge card

Lots of firsts for me here.

1 – I’ve never participated in a multi day commitment to fitness challenge – unless you count my race training – which I guess is a challenge, but it’s different.

2 – I’m now hosting the challenge too, at Tribe, so this is super fun!

Here’s what you need to know! (so read on and think about joining me!)

We’re challenging the Tribe to 14 classes in 14 days. Do you have what it takes? Of course you do! We believe in you. To help you along your journey, here are 5 tips to make the most of your challenge.

1. Commit!

The first step to accepting our challenge couldn’t be any easier. Use your current class packages, monthly unlimited pass, or the special 2-Week Challenge Unlimited pass to attend 14 of your favourite classes between June 1-14th and be entered to win some awesome prizes from our amazing partners New Balance Canada, Ciele Athletics, Garden of Life, and Nuun Canada.

2. Define Your Why.

What do you want it more than? Cultivate a well-thought out, honest goal that will continue to motivate you for the 14 classes. Share your goal on the back of your challenge card, and on social, and keep it on your mind as your motivation to move more over these 14 days.

3. Schedule Your 14 Classes Now.

Approach your challenge like the non-negotiable meetings from your workday. Schedule them in at the start of the week either online or in person, and don’t let anything get in your way. You are unstoppable!

4. Invite Your Tribe.

Sometimes it does take a village, and it can certainly make a difference when your friends and family support your effort to cultivate health and wellness in your life. Invite your Tribe to join you in studio for the challenge, ask your work colleagues to hold you accountable and follow up daily with how the challenge is going, or simply share your progress through social – online followers are a great way to connect, inspire, and be motivated – and don’t forget to tag us too! (@Tribe_Fitness – but you already knew that right?)

5. Celebrate Your Success.

One class done? Awesome! Remembered your workout clothes? Woo hoo! Did your first yoga class? Hurray!
No matter the size of your success, celebrate it. Let this 14-class challenge present you with an opportunity to reveal your best self and to create a habit of healthy routines. Don’t think of this challenge as short-term; rather, you are reaffirming your commitment to yourself—and we are so excited to be along for the journey!
