TEAM WINSOR PILATES JOINS THE ALS ASSOCIATION GOLDEN WEST CHAPTER’S LA WALK TO DEFEAT ALS

Gratz Pilates is proud to continue our support for TEAM WINSOR PILATES and the upcoming ALS ASSOCIATION GOLDEN WEST CHAPTER'S VIRTUAL WALK TO DEFEAT ALS — Our friend SAUL CHOZA LEADS THE WARM-UP as we raise awareness and remember our beloved Mari Winsor and her amazing life!

It's with a heavy but hopeful heart that Team Winsor Pilates joins The ALS Association Golden West Chapter's Virtual Walk to Defeat ALS. On Sunday, November 1st, the team will participate in memory of Mari Winsor whose passing, on April 28th, left an enormous void in our hearts. Mari was loved by all who met her in person at her Winsor Pilates studios, at national and international Pilates workshops and conferences, or virtually through her award-winning videos. And here we are today, amidst a global pandemic, participating in the walk, virtually.

Funds raised during this event allow the Golden West Chapter to have the resources necessary to provide invaluable services for those diagnosed with ALS and their families such as: support groups, an equipment loan program, access to specialized care, and ground-breaking scientific research to find treatments and cures. All of these services helped Mari as she lived with ALS for 8 years. We are so grateful to the Golden West Chapter. 

To date, Team Winsor Pilates has raised $8,700 towards our goal of $25,000. Please help us get over the finish line with a gift, in Mari’s memory, to Team Winsor Pilates. Be part of the movement powering the search for effective treatments and cures. No matter how small the gift, every little bit helps to defeat ALS. MAKE YOUR GIFT TODAY

AND FOR FUN!!!! Join Team Winsor Pilates and Saul Choza, Winsor Choza, on Sunday, November 1st, as he leads the warm-up, in our very own Team Winsor Pilates ZOOM breakout room. Please register in advance for this virtual event here  — and please, email Alison Graham, Mari’s longtime PR Rep, at alison@ajgpr.com, so, she knows who will be zooming in. You can zoom in at any time from 9:00 am to 11:15 am PST.  It’s a chance to connect with Pilates friends from all over the world.
