Our Promise to Nicholas Event

We held a our first fundraising event back on August 1st with the help of some of the wonderful coaches on our team, Jacki McQuillen and Missy Connolly. The event would not have been as successful as it was if it wasn't for the master planning of Chrisann Dalton. We want to thank everyone that attended the event and share a little bit with the rest of you about Nicholas and why we held this event for him.

Nicholas is a six year old little boy that was diagnosed with Batten disease also called Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis (NCL). Children diagnosed with this disease usually only live to the ages of 8 to 12. The families hope is to raise enough money to do more studies in the hopes to find a cure or a way to slow the disease.

Here a few pictures of the event. Even Nicholas came out with his mother.

The kids had a great time with a Shaun Ts Fit Kids workout (so did our coaches).

We all had a wonderful time at the event and are glad we could share our love of health and fitness to help a wonderful boy like Nicholas. We were able to raise $350 for the Our Promise to Nicholas Foundation as this event. It is a small amount and we wished we could have done more but every little bit helps.

For more information on how you can help Nicholas and his family as well as other children with Batten's Disease please visit
