Jessica Rivelli, CEO and Founder of the Working Women of Tampa Bay Networking Group kicked off the first segment talking about a new fitness craze – Spoxing.  This spinning and boxing mix has picked up steam in the Tampa Bay region and on Saturday August 15th, Epic Boxing and Fitness will be holding a nationwide fitness/fund-raiser called “Spoxing for Charity”.  This inaugural event will be held at the Epic Studio in Hyde Park from 8:30 am to 1pm and tickets are $30 and all net proceeds go to the Junior League of Tampa.  After the inaugural launch here in Tampa, they are excited to take a roving EPIC Boxing & Fitness to CHICAGO, where they will “pop-up” an EPIC studio at the world famous WRIGLEY FIELD! The Chicago “Pop-Up” will benefit Joe Maddons Respect 90 Foundation, a Cubs Charity seeking to provide Chicago’s children and young adults with opportunities to develop championship attitudes through sports while encouraging fitness, scholarship and character development.  To RSVP and donate visit http://epicboxingandfitness.com/rsvp.php

After the opening segment, we shifted focus to talk about the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk.  I was joined in studio by Rita Lowman, chairman of the Walk and State Board Member for the American Cancer Society along with Jenna Digiannantonio, Manager for the Walk in Hillsborough County.  The walk will be held October 24th at the Amalie Arena and will begin at 9:30 am.  Volunteers, donors, sponsors and participants are encouraged to sign up / donate and can do so by visiting this link http://main.acsevents.org/site/TR/MakingStridesAgainstBreastCancer/MSABCCY15FL?pg=entry&fr_id=70032

Last year’s walk raised over $600,000 for the program last year and over 18,000 people participated.  The event is a fun filled day that honors those affected with a Survivor’s VIP area and businesses and groups are encouraged to join together to form teams to walk and enjoy the day.  There is no registration fee and no fundraising minimum for the walkers/teams and for those that raise $100, you will receive a T-shirt.  For more information, please reach out to Jenna at jenna.digiannantonio@cancer.org or contact her at 813-319-5922 on ways to get involved and visit the link above to learn more about the event and to sign up!
