Chicago - November 14, 2015. Friends of the Rolfe Young Professionals Board worked up a sweat in support of early detection pancreatic cancer research at an all-level dance/fitness calss at Pure Barre: Old Town. In a single hour of explosive exercise, the YPB supporters not only worked off some Holiday-season second helpings, they also raised over $300 to benefit Rolfe's mission.
The workout was part of a series of Community Events organized by YPB members this November in honor of pancreatic cancer awareness month. “This is a small effort,” observed YPB member and event-organizer Megan Bornhauser, “but multiple small efforts can equal big results. Our goal with modest fundraisers like this is to really spread awareness, as much as possible, and hopefully inspire other people to make similar small efforts of their own.”

This is not the first time Pure Barre has partnered with Rolfe, and the Foundation could not be more appreciative for their continued support and demonstrations of civic spirit. Partaking in exercise, and encouraging our community to bolster their physical health is a wonderful practice that is utterly in line with the Foundation’s spirit.
We can’t wait for the next workout!
The Rolfe Foundation Young Professionals Board would like to commend Taylor Wilson and Megan Bornhauser, for curating the events calendar this November in honor of Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month.
