Espanola, New Mexico, 7/16/2012 – The local Curves branch goes beyond their physical wellness for women mission to support victims and survivors of domestic violence in living healthy life styles. Their goal is to partner up with the Crisis Center of Northern New Mexico (CCNNM) to heal women who have suffered abuse in their lives.
Such a partnership came about through the idea that women’s health goes beyond the exercise and healthy dieting. Women’s health is also about getting education that prevents them from falling into domestic abuse situations. Curves Espanola understands this very well and found a way to engage women in health practices that cover both phases.
Curves Espanola and CCNNM will provide an opportunity for women of this community to blend all aspects of their health. “It is important that everyone understands that healthy bodies are just part of a whole; and that if women want live healthy life styles they should be educated to avoid dangerous situations that result in unhealthy living.” Said Ramon Garcia assistant director of CCNNM. The benefits that this brings to the community can range from healthy eating habits, exercising properly, to identifying and ultimately avoiding dangerous personal relationships.
Curves Espanola will host a ZUMBATHON event that will benefit victims of Domestic Violence. The event will take place on Curves Espanola, 1227 N. Railroad Avenue on August 2, 2012 from 6 PM to 8 PM. There will be a minimum donation of five dollars to participate. All proceeds will be donated to the Crisis Center of Northern New Mexico.
Curves Espanola offers a complete fitness and nutrition solution for women in the community. In addition, club promotions and events encourage women to support charitable causes, learn about health-related issues and forge lasting friendships as part of the global Curves community. By partnering with CCNNM, Curves Espanola supports the over-all health aspects that make up women’s health for all the women in Espanola.
