Fitness meets Philanthropy for HAITI

No Comment

I can’t wait!  Don’t really see how they’re linked, (just like I also don’t really get what cupcakes have to do with earthquakes either) but I love a good charity gimick, and I love a good group fitness class!


Running for a Reason is proud to present Black 2 Basics for Haiti. This fun, high energy fitness event will be held at Circa on January 31st. B2B for Haiti will attract health and fitness enthusiasts of all ages. In addition, the event will provide a fun opportunity for us to help those affected by the earthquakes in Haiti.

Who We Are

RUNNING FOR A REASON is a non-profit organization started by Jully Black, Shaun Campbell and Desmona Cole dedicated to enhancing the physical health of adults and promoting children’s fitness education. The proceeds of its initiatives are used to support health organizations making a difference in the fight against issues such as Juvenile Diabetes, Obesity, Eating Disorders and Cancer.

BLACK 2 BASICS is a fun, full-body workout created by Singer/Songwriter Jully Black that will quickly make you sweat and burn those extra unwanted pounds. Just 21 minutes long, Black 2 Basics (B2B) was designed to encourage women and men with busy lifestyles and little time to spare to honour their bodies by being active and doing something positive –with you, for you.
