There is no greater calling than to serve your fellow men. There is no greater contribution than to help the weak. There is no greater satisfaction than to have done it well. 

Walter Reuther

       We have a great opportunity to come together and help out a wonderful woman fighting breast cancer.  Jenny Christensen is a mother of two, who is currently fighting breast cancer for the second time.  She is an amazing example of perseverance, courage, and strength.  As many of you know, the fight against breast cancer can be very expensive.  We have a chance to help ease some of the monetary stress for the Christensens.
On Saturday, November 20th, from 8am-4pm,
Adams Traditional Academy with the help of the National Junior Honor Society, will be hosting a fundraiser at the school to help earn funds to go directly to the payment of Jenny’s cancer treatments. 
There will be classes offered:

8am Yoga
9am Martialcise Aerobics/Self Defense
10am Pilates
11am Childrens Dance Class
Noon Zumba
1pm Teen/Adult Dance Class

                                                                                                                                  We will also have massages, hair cuts, “Glitter Toes”, adorable hair clips, “Forever Is Better” shirt sales (owned by Jenny Chirstensen), breast cancer bracelets, and a SILENT AUCTION! 
We’ve already had some amazing items donated to our silent auction, including horse rides, photography sessions, massage gift cards, restaurant gift cards, babysitting, one month of HCG, a vegan cleanse, hotel gift certificates, gift baskets, and much, much more!  The silent auction items will be available to bid on all day.  The auction ends at 3:45pm sharp.
There are so many families affected by cancer and in need of some extra help.  This is a great opportunity to come together and give service to one of those families.                                                                                                          
Please mark your calendar’s for this Saturday Nov, 20th, and plan on attending.  Tell your friends, family, and neighbors about this great event and help us to make this a success!    Adams Traditional Academy is located at 2323 W Parkside Lane (23rd Ave south of Pinnacle Peak) in Phoenix
