For those that do not know us, we are Mike and Joslin Amaral of Vitality Obstacle Fitness. We have been a part of the Vitality family for the past 3 years. We are going to be riding in the Autumn Escape Bike Trek, which is a 3-day 160-mile bike ride from Plymouth, MA – Provincetown, MA to support the American Lung Association. When we started doing this ride in 2015, there was only two of us. That first year we experienced our first “Spirit of the Trek” which was enlightening at the very least. We watched as each speaker took the stage to share their stories of loss, of their fight, surgeries etc. Some of these “survivors” were riding on this trek, completing each day with an oxygen tank. If that is not inspiring, I do not know what is. Did you know more than 32 million Americans suffer from lung diseases such as asthma and COPD that makes it more difficult for them to breathe? How about the fact Lung Cancer is the number one killer of both men and women today, and is the third leading cause of death in the United States? The kicker to these statistics...it is not just from smoking, which is the ever-popular misconception. Anyone can be diagnosed with Lung Cancer. In looking at our own lives, we realized how many people we have lost or are struggling with some sort of lung disease. It is because of them that we ride.
We now have a team of 10, called the RFTC (Riders for the Cause). Last year our team raised over $8,000. We all ride to remember someone, to raise awareness because many people are not educated on how many lung diseases are out there affecting people daily. Our goal is to raise awareness and money to help the American Lung Association provide resources, education, research and help Americans breathe easier.

On September 8th, Vitality will be hosting our 3rd Fundraiser of the year!! This time for all the fitness and OCR fanatics that can come on down, get a killer workout and support a great cause!
One of our long standing members, Elizabeth McGuigan, will be running the New York Marathon and raising money for cancer research at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Center. But this is much more than just running a race. Elizabeth's reasons are much more personal and inspiring. Here's her story in Elizabeth's words.
"I am running the NY Marathon for the first time, in honor of my late cousin Mac. A couple weeks before my son Frankie was born, my cousins had twin boys – Mac and Ailyn. I was so excited to watch the three of them grow up together. It was devastating when Mac was diagnosed with an aggressive childhood cancer – neuroblastoma – and passed away at the age of two. He has left a huge imprint on our lives. I can’t do anything to give him the experiences that I watch Frankie and Ailyn have. Riding bikes, going to school, giggling at body parts in the Natural History museum, camping out… but I can help raise money to fund more research and more answers for other families going through this. I’ll be running with Fred’s team, to support cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Center, where Mac was treated. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation here: http://mskcc.convio.net/site/TR/RunsWalks/FredsTeam…, or search for my name on the Fred’s Team page here: https://www.fredsteam.org/donate."

Sign up for a unique Ninja Competition Experience!!
This competition will be a creative, fun, and exciting Capture the Flag Style Competition! Each competitor will have a designated time limit to try and capture as many flags as possible to earn points! Obstacle skills and strategy are a must!
They will also be competing for a cause! One of our members and friend of mine, Chris White, will be raising money for Dana Farber Cancer Institute! Here is Chis' Letter!
My name is Chris and I am running in the 2018 New Balance Falmouth Road Race in support of Dana Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund. A little bit about me, I am a 2017 graduate from Massachusetts Maritime Academy. I currently work on the Fast Ferry from New Bedford to Nantucket. I am an avid obstacle course racer and road racer. I am also a member of Vitality Obstacle Fitness and an aspiring Ninja competitor.
I chose to run for Dana Farber because of some of my friends who recently ran the Boston Marathon for Dana Farber. They ran because their family had been affected by cancer. They inspired me to get out there and make a difference. My family has been fortunate to be only minimally affected by cancer but that doesn’t mean we can’t do something about it. I am running for all those who have been, are, and could be affected by cancer because I know that together we can help reach the ultimate finish line: A World Without Cancer!
Please help me in supporting Dana Farber and their life saving mission by donating to my personal fundraising page at www.rundanafarber.org/falmouth2018/chriswhite or join me on July 7th at Vitality Obstacle Fitness in Fall River, MA for a Ninja Competition Fundraiser! All proceeds will go directly to Dana Farber to assist in patient care and research for a cure!"
