8/26/10: The Thoreau Club and the Emerson Hospital Auxiliary launch program to support wellness in the community

The Thoreau Club and the Emerson Hospital Auxiliary have teamed together to create a new program called “3G—A Family Adventure.”  The program has three primary purposes—Get your family moving, Give to Emerson Hospital’s Bethke Cancer Center, and feel Great.

The Thoreau Club, a leader in health and wellness, in partnership with the Emerson Hospital Auxiliary, is launching this type of event for the second year. The program is designed to help individuals and families improve their overall fitness while also contributing to a cause. The month-long event allows both club members and non-members to pay a fee ($100/family for Thoreau members and $299 for non-members) to participate in family-friendly programs, including  activities like small group fitness sessions, family learn-to-play tennis jamborees, kids fitness programs, spa samplers, water baby infant safety classes, family meal planning sessions, and more.  A portion of the proceeds from the program benefit Emerson Hospital’s Bethke Cancer Center.  Last year’s program raised $14,000 for the Bethke Cancer Center and drew more than 200 participants.

The Thoreau Club is dedicated to increasing the wellness of the residents and employees of Concord and the surrounding communities.  “We loved the idea of helping families learn to lead healthier lifestyles while supporting our Bethke Cancer Center,” said Christine Schuster, president and CEO of Emerson Hospital.

This event is open to the public. Registration begins September 1, 2010. The event runs from October 1 – October 31, 2010.  To register, visit www.thoreau.com/3gfamilyadventure  or call Jim or Tricia at 978-831-1200. 

For more information, contact Laura Klein at 978-831-1212 or at laura@thoreau.com.

The Emerson Hospital Auxiliary supports Emerson through increased community awareness, health-related education and fundraising initiatives. Over the past decade, the Auxiliary’s fundraising efforts have helped to raise more than $2.4M for hospital equipment, facilities and services.
