Work Out 💚 Give Back is back in full effect for 2020! New to the studio last year, we’re excited to come together (virtually, of course) as a community to support two great local organizations.
We hope you’ll join us to gather virtually and celebrate the Hyatt Training family while supporting some of the amazing nonprofit work being done in our community!
Join a team of trainers and meet, sweat and enjoy the company of other Hyatt Training members – even from a distance online!
We request a $25 donation to each nonprofit. Friends and family welcome, membership is not required!
Who: Hyatt Training members, guests and interested community members
What: A 75-minute guided group workout accessible to all levels of fitness and ages. Several members of the #DreamTeam have volunteered their services to craft and lead the workouts.
When: Sunday 11/22 and Sunday 12/13 from 9 a.m. – 10:15 a.m.
Where: Joining link forthcoming!
Why: To have fun together supporting organizations doing important work in our community!
Donations: Donations can be made online directly to each nonprofit (links forthcoming!). We will also have a collection jar out at the studio prior to the event so everyone can participate easily. Simply drop your cash or check (made out to the nonprofit) prior to event day.

This year’s beneficiaries…
Our first event will be a tribute to the late Justice Ruth Bader Gingburg while supporting local organization Mudbone Grown. RBG’s long time relationship with her personal trainer is well documented and the workout we do that day will incorporate some of her famous workout components. Mudbone Grown is an organization dedicated to creating kinship, fostering cultural pride and community through the cultivation of land ownership, food production, and community building. Mudbone Grown is a black-owned farm enterprise that promotes inter-generational community-based farming that creates measurable and sustainable environmental, social, cultural, and economic impacts in communities. We think RBG would give the stamp of approval for their work while we support a nonprofit in our local community. We’ll add to the fun with a “best collar” contest!
Our second will support the Oregon Community Foundation 2020 Community Rebuilding Fund. The Fund was created to support the long-term rebuilding efforts in the wake of this summer’s devastating wild fires. The Fund will invest in recovery and rebuilding — particularly for Oregon’s vulnerable communities.
“OCF established the 2020 Community Rebuilding Fund to serve as a vehicle to leverage public, private and philanthropic investments to catalyze recovery and rebuilding efforts in the mid- and long-term. The goal is to gather resources and plan for what comes next. It’s a long road ahead, but we’re encouraged by the outpouring of support from across the country to help communities rebuild. All of this work will be coordinated in partnership with the Ford Family Foundation and Meyer Memorial Trust, our regional foundation partners. While we haven’t developed the final framework yet for how funds will be allocated for these efforts, our focus will be on the ongoing supports needed for those affected by the wildfires, including but not limited to: access to mental health resources and trauma counseling, housing, economic and workforce development, child/family care, health and community vitality, to name a few.”
Thank you to the event planning committee! Debbie Hill, Regina Hauser, Reed Adamson, and Julie Hamilton 💚
