There are certain people who have walked into my life after starting The Her Initiative that have absolutely blown me away. Lindsey Bomgren of Nourish Move Love is one of those special people. The first time I talked to Lindsey, she already had a game plan. She was so excited about the ways she could use her gifts and talents to bring clean water and hygiene education to the women and children we work with. Little did she know that in the back of my mind I had been dreaming up what “fit for her” could mean. And she brought it to life, far better than I could have ever imagined.
Last April, Lindsey put together a team of amazing women to help her host her first Fit for Her Minneapolis event. We packed the space full of women, yoga mats, and amazing women-owned small business owners. The music was pumping, the food was delicious, and incredible connections were made. Fast forward 6 months and Lindsey was already planning event #2!
So two weeks ago on February 18th Lindsey, Lee from Fit Foodie Finds, Stacie from The Read Food Dietitians, and a few other amazing women hosted their 2nd annual Fit for Her Minneapolis event. To say it was a huge success is an understatement. Lindsey had an internal goal of raising $5000 and blew the top off by raising just over $7000! She got an even bigger venue (thanks 514 studios!), packed it full with even more women and vendors, and co-led a really fun barre strong HIIT workout with Lee.
To get to share about our work with this captive audience two weeks ago was such a gift. To see a room fill up with over 100 women that came together with like minds and spirits, to workout for a cause was an incredible thing to behold. I’m beyond grateful to the ladies who hosted this event and their passion to help women here and women in the developing world!
