A few years ago, when I had the pleasure to get involved with the FitBloggin conference; I met two very amazing and special people. Sue O’Lear and Samantha Collins. They inspired me to not give up on my Zumba dreams, and what little I knew at the time; these two where about to become gym owners.

They own Trio Fitness out in Wilson N.C. They will be hosting their first ever 5K on February 14th 2015 with a 5K training club this10891755_271011299689555_7423831144278480669_n spring to help raise funds for The Maggie Society Canine Rescue and Rehabilitation.

The Maggie Society rescues dogs from high-kill shelters and works with a network of volunteers and other rescue groups to provide medical care, fostering, and eventually loving fur-ever homes. Come meet available dogs, learn about fostering, and raise money for their cause.

Not only will they be holding an event in NC, they are also offering a virtual option. You hear me talk in some previous blogs about how much love I have had for the virtual race movement.

And it would not take too long of reading my blog to know my love for rescue and animal organizations. My little angel George was a rescue. (I just spent the last year fundraising for him).

I love these girls like family, and the atmosphere that they inspire is legendary. I know this is going to be a success for them.

If you are in the NC area, please consider participating. If you are not, please consider the virtual option. It is 25.00 and you get a shirt Trio Fitness 5K Fun Run and Mutt Strut
