On March 17th, St. Patrick’s Day at 5:45pm, a fire broke out on Valencia Street in San Francisco, two doors down from EHS Pilates. The four alarm fire displaced 60 of our neighbors.
In response, EHS Pilates, spearheaded by trainer Christopher Nelson, launched a week-long fundraiser and drive. We held pilates classes all week and donated 100% of proceeds to the American Red Cross. The effort culminated in a “Pilates in the Park” BBQ and raffle on Sunday, March 30th at 1:30.
We were so touched by the generosity of our trainers, clients, neighbors and community as a whole. We had over 75 incredible donations from local retailers for our raffle, food was donated by local markets, labor volunteers came from the neighboring Teen Challenge, Dolores Park Church and local celeb M.C. Jon Fast.
Our event was wonderful, I have attached some photos as well as other articles that were written about the fire. We raised funds of over $5,500 that went directly to our displaced neighbors.
