How do we overcome adversity? 

How do we provide a united front against threats to our hearts, health & souls?

What would we do without our friends & family?

The letter from our friend Karen (below) answers many of those questions in a pragmatic and action-oriented way. When we collaborate with those we love, our united effort becomes a formidable force.

Please join us in supporting Karen. If you live in Chicago, we encourage you to take the SoulCycle class on April 1st. If you don’t live in Chicago, please consider one of the other alternatives.
