In yoga, metta is the practice of love and kindness toward others. On November 7th lululemon athletica Chicago will be hosting our first ever 24 hour event to raise funds and awareness for the amazing organization, Smile Train. Our ambassador, David Coligado will run on our Equinox sponsored treadmill at the Rush street store for 24 hours with a goal of running 100 miles or more. Together we have set an audacious goal of raising $25,000 to support 100 free smiles for children in developing countries with cleft lip and/or palate. To find out more about Dave's mission, what the organization is up to and to make a donation to help us reach 100 smiles, please visit his personal website:
Event details and schedule
The exciting news is that everyone can join in and participate in this event! In order to run for 24 hours Dave will need a lot of support. We will have our Equinox sponsored treadmills set up not only at Rush Street to run alongside Dave, but at each of our other 5 city stores. Registration is free and we only ask that you either make a donation (support.smiletrain.org/goto/thisismyrun) or spread the word to others when you sign up. We are also be hosting events at our Rush Street store to keep the energy pumping and to cheer Dave along on his run.
