[Events] In DC This Week

I normally don’t do events post like this one but when two amazing events are happening in Washington, DC in one week, I certainly have to highlight them!

DC Fit Week

Beginning today, DC Fit Week is geared toward bringing excitement and awareness to physical activity as a means to stimulate weight loss. By doing this, it will motivate and empower active social adults with the knowledge to lead healthier lives and to provide a support network of like-minded professional people.

You can sign up for free classes through the week,. The full schedule is available here.

Wednesday night is the DC Fit Week Expo which is DC’s only fitness-focused happy hour, expert chat and fashion show sponsored by local fitness shops! It’s free so be sure to sign up! I’ll be there with WGirls DC so come by and say hi!

For more information on DC Fit Week, be sure to follow the them on Twitter.

DC Twestival

I love using Social Media for raising awareness and DC Twestival is part of the global organization, Twestival. An event fundraiser is hosted to benefit either a local Washington DC charity or one global charity with global impact.

This Thursday, March 24, you should join us for this year’s fundraiser!

Come join us for a a social media fundraiser in Washington, DC! This year, DC Twestival Local is joining with FAIR Fund to elevate community awareness surrounding human trafficking. FAIR Fund’s program, “Tell Your Friends,” reaches out to youth in DC schools with a four week process to educate and discuss the serious nature of human trafficking, how to identify it and how to end or report it!

100% of ticket sales and donations will go directly to FAIR Fund in support of local DC programs and initiatives! Join us Thursday, March 24th, at Shadow Room. Be ready to meet the DC Twestival team, and talk with the FAIR Fund nonprofit executives!

You can buy your tickets here if you haven’t yet. If you can’t make it, be SURE to spread the word. Tweet about it using the #DCTwestival hashtag! For updates and more information, follow DC Twestival on twitter.

So, in case you missed it, you buy your tickets HERE.

Celebrate PQ

OK, so this isn’t a major event but my birthday celebration will be at the Science Club on Sat, March 26th so be sure to stop by.

Hope you all have a wonderful week!
