Bootcamp Fundraiser for Blake Goshen Memorial Fund

Community Draws Together for Bootcamp Fundraiser for Blake Goshen Memorial Fund

Charlotte, NC – July 14th, 2010—The first of many benefits will be held for the Goshen family to raise funds for a memorial for Blake Goshen, the 8-year-old boy who died tragically in a boating accident on Saturday, June 26th, 2010. The Blake’s Blessing Foundation has been established to handle funds that will eventually be used to help with boat safety programs in the Carolinas as well as provide support for changing boat licensing legislation.

The Goshen family would like to place a memorial for their son, Blake, at Windjammer Park in Tega Cay.  Many in the community, including those in Blake’s school, church and sports league, have asked how they can contribute to the Goshen family.  “This is a great opportunity for people in our area to show their love and support for the Goshens,” says Julie Sawyer, owner of Tuff Girl Bootcamps.  Sawyer will hold a charity bootcamp workout on Saturday, July 31st at 9 AM at The Palisades Sports Complex for anyone interested in donating to the Blake’s Blessing Foundation. Sawyer says the workout will be challenging, fun and is suited for beginners and advanced fitness enthusiasts alike.
Sawyer will also be raffling off a free 1-month, 3-month, and 6-month membership to her bootcamps plus 1 free week of her Kids’ Fit Camp for individuals who participate in the workout that Saturday.
