Pop-Up Pilates with MADI Apparel

April 24, 2016 8:00 pm - June 11, 2016 11:00 am 1659 Summit, Kansas City, MO 64108

Join Thrive Pilates & Movement Studio for a series of Pop-Up Pilates with Make a Difference Intimate (MADI) Apparel. At Thrive Pilates & Movement Studio, we are passionate about improving women’s fitness and health. We are so excited to be partnering with another women-focused, small business in Kansas City! All proceeds from this event will be used for MADI Apparel to donate underwear to sexual assault survivors in Kansas City.  Assault Survivor Kits are purchased and assembled by volunteers from Assistance League of Kansas City and then delivered to MOCSA’s hospital advocates who distribute the kits to individuals who are identified at area hospitals.

Trained MOCSA advocates provide support and assistance to adolescent and adult rape and sexual assault victims during the forensic evidence collection exam at area hospital emergency departments. Advocates are on stand-by 24-hours a day to provide support, information, and referrals to victims and their families at hospitals throughout the metropolitan area. For a map of hospitals where MOCSA provides hospital advocacy, click here.

In November of 2015, Assistance League of Kansas City was fortunate to meet and become community partners with MADI Apparel.  For every pair of underwear sold by MADI, they donate a pair to a woman in need.  The generous donation of their high quality underwear has been a welcome addition to the Assult Survivor Kits.

Classes are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. Or get our ‘Complete Set” for $27 when you preregister for both events before April 24th. Check in starts at 7:30 PM on April 24th and 9:30 AM on June 11th. Classes are one hour in length. Please BYOMat and water.
