GenYWCA is a new group of young women and men leaders who support the mission of the YWCA of Minneapolis. Help kickoff this group at a Fitness Social on September 15!
What: GenYWCA Fitness Social kickoff event
When: September 15, 2011 from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm
Where: Downtown YWCA of Minneapolis, 1130 Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis (corner of 12th Street and Nicollet Mall)
Come dressed ready to be active and work up a sweat (or glow) in one of the mini fitness classes in mat Pilates, spin or kettlebell. Or, if Thursday is your “night off” from exercising, join in on a spirited game of ping pong, bean bag toss, or four square!
Light appetizers from French Meadow Bakery & Cafe and smoothies from Jamba Juice (while supplies last) will be served. There will also be a drawing with some really neat prizes.
Please RSVP at: http://genywcakickoff-rss.eventbrite.com/
Don’t forget to “like” the YWCA of Minneapolis on Facebook for updates from GenYWCA!
See you there!
PS: Can’t make it to the kickoff but want to join? Let Sarah know firstname.lastname@example.org. GenYWCA will host a range of fun activities, events and volunteer opportunities throughout the year!

You're Invited: GenYWCA Fitness Social Kick-Off Event!
I was so honored to attend my dear friend's wedding this past weekend, which was a beautiful blend of civil, cultural, and religious ceremonies. Another part of who she is, however, is a clear personal and professional advocate for the mission of the YWCA - eliminating racism and empowering girls! True to form, she had thought-provoking and conversation-inducing question cards at the dinner tables, encouraging her community of friends and family to connect at this celebratory event. As an additional wedding gift to her, I'd like to pass on the good news that the YWCA of Minneapolis is now kicking off an initiative to engage emerging leaders in their mission and work. And if you couldn't be there for the wedding, well, at least you know you're invited to the after-party. Check out details below for a fun night of physical activity and community engagement!
