Inspired to Move is a unique opportunity for the public to sample from a variety of classes normally available only to InspireHealth patients. The classes include meditation, 80s tunes cardio, yoga, cooking, and more (please see full class list below).
Since Spring 2020, InspireHealth has worked hard to continue and expand much-needed supportive cancer care by offering extensive virtual programs and services for cancer patients throughout the pandemic. As one of our largest annual fundraisers, Inspired to Move is a key source of revenue for our organization. Your support by joining us for a class or two (or more!) and making a gift in honour of supportive cancer care, makes all the difference.
Please join us by inviting your friends and family to participate in one of our fun and engaging class offerings aimed at supporting
both physical and mental health.
Everyone is welcome!
