During the first weekend in January, we held a Member Appreciation Event at Stride Fitness in Burlington, MA. It was a wonderful weekend that celebrated the people who have joined our community and are finding joyful ways to move their bodies and be part of a warm and supportive team.

We really wanted to highlight the mental AND physical benefits of walking/jogging/running - and we were so grateful to have the support of Outrun the dark, whose mission to promote mental health awareness through empowering physical movement aligns perfectly with our own.

The participants were both current and new friends in the Boston area who benefited from delicious food, a DJ who created a true party atmosphere, and a few lucky winners of the wonderful ORTD merchandise that I gave out with a little speech about what the company does - and why *mental* health matters - especially as part of your overall health and wellness journey.

For anyone interested in learning more about Stride, please check out the Instagram @stridefitness_burlington or reach out to Fitness Director Kris @kafabbri - we would love to welcome anyone of any fitness level, all walks of life, and all ages and abilities. We cherish and take care of every single person who walks through our doors - and together we WILL Outrun the dark!
