If you've trained with us at ProBody you already understand how committed we are to improving the overall health and wellness of our community one (two, three or four) bodies at a time. This is our passion, making a difference in the lives of our clients by helping them realize a strong, and healthier, body and mind. With this passion comes the desire to offer our support whenever possible to the community with enthusiasm, in a positive and spirited way. To that end, we are proud to share with you some of the community events to which we have made a contribution this year.



WESTCHESTER LAND TRUST GALA
The WLT protects land in several ways: through private landowners on conservation easements, through government agencies and local advocates to buy important properties, and with neighbors to buy important properties and conserve them in perpetuity. ProBody was happy to assist through a donation to the event's silent auction in support of land preservation.

BOYS & GIRLS CLUBS OF NORTHERN WESTCHESTER

ProBody's support included a full-page ad in the auction journal as well as a $500 gift certificate for Personal Training and the ProBody t-shirt. Enlisting the help of some talented athletes, ProBody welcomed guests as they arrived for this special evening.

UNITED WAY OF NORTHERN WESTCHESTER
A locally based, volunteer-led organization, the United Way works year round to build neighborhoods and communities, help children and youth succeed, strengthen families and promote self-sufficiency. ProBody was proud to lend support this year to the Annual Leadership Dinner and Silent Auction held at the Kittle House with special guest, William H. Donaldson, the former 27th Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission.

PARENT PROJECT MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY DMD
Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, is a disease in boys resulting in severe muscle deterioration and shortened life expectancy.

ProBody is excited to help foster this new generation of theatre professionals with a full inside cover ad in this year's program.

"FEED ME FRESH" BENEFIT FOR THE MOUNT KISCO DAY CARE CENTER
This years' annual culinary adventure was hosted under a tent at Daisy Hill Farm, honoring the Westchester Coalition for Better School Food, and benefiting The Mount Kisco Daycare Center which offers outstanding child care, preschool and after-school programs.

THE CHILD REACH FOUNDATION GALA 2006
Oscar nominated actor and Bedford resident Chazz Palminteri and wife Gianna host the annual Child Reach Foundation Gala to raise funds for research into finding cures for pediatric blood diseases such as thalassemia.
