When long-time Ultimate Bootcamp Trainer Jeanine Babineau asked if we could help her organize a fundraiser workout for VHL Disease, we had never heard of it before.
Jeanine explained that her father James Babineau (pictured here with his daughters) was diagnosed with Von Hippel-Lindau Disease (VHL) in 2005. This genetic disease is the random growth of numerous life threatening tumors in various parts of the body, which if left untreated can result in blindness, paralysis, brain damage, and even death. Upon being diagnosed, Jeanine's father has undergone SEVERAL surgeries in his pancreas and kidneys, and has endured many painful procedures. He is truly a “walking miracle” and inspiration to his family. Unfortunately, there is no cure for VHL...yet.
We would like to invite you to join Jeanine as she leads a motivating, outdoor workout to raise funds for the VHL Family Alliance. Burn major calories and kick your weekend off to a fantastic start knowing that you took a step in helping others lead a healthier life.
And be sure to say hello to Jeanine's mom at the raffle table before, during or after the workout. All proceeds from the fundraiser will go towards finding a cure for VHL and supporting family members of those who have VHL disease.
If you would like to attend the inspiring VHL Fundraiser Workout, online registration is required. Visit www.ultimatebootcamp.com/vhl/.
