My Brother Rocks the Spectrum Honored at Mindbody BOLD Conference
September 22, 2021 | In: Events , News
When it comes to leading a healthier lifestyle, we all know that it takes sweat, tears, and the support of a wellness community. We Rock the Spectrum Kid’s Gym, along with its non-profit, My Brother Rocks the Spectrum Foundation (MBRTS), are among the most influential international wellness franchises that connect children of ALL abilities and their families to helpful resources and an inclusive, sensory-safe environment to start building healthier habits. For this reason, we are incredibly proud to share the news that SaaS company, Mindbody, selected MBRTS as its featured charity to be presented with a $5,000 donation at this year’s BOLD The Mindbody Conference in San Diego, California!!!
As the leading online scheduling and management software for wellness services, Mindbody is known globally for connecting communities to the vital wellness services they need. Though We Rock the Spectrum Kid’s Gym is one of its largest clientele, the majority of wellness businesses that use Mindbody’s services tend to cater more towards fitness for the adult demographic.
“When you think about wellness for adults, there are many things that they control. They can eat better, they can workout more,” says Dina Kimmel, WRTS CEO & Founder, who was present to receive the award in San Diego.“When you have a child with a neuro or physical disability, they don’t have that choice. It was exciting to be the company to speak to the public and let them know more about the minds and bodies that our community works with. It takes a lot of money, time, and effort for an entire family, as well as the kiddos, to get to be a part of wellness.”
As honored guests, our West Coast Corporate team was invited to attend the 3-day conference from August 31 – September 2, 2021. Mindbody even created a theme for the event for registrants to participate in, inspired by our mission – Wellness Rocks the Spectrum. Through the Wellness Rocks the Spectrum campaign, participants were encouraged to take a photo of themselves doing a fitness activity to share. Thanks to the participation of over 1,000 people(!), WRTS Corporate Community Manager, AJ, and the Mindbody BOLD team surprised Dina and the rest of the WRTS team with an incredible mosaic using the photos to create an image of our rockin’ facility in Dubai!
Dina and the We Rock team got the full VIP experience throughout the conference, which included personalized bobbleheads of each team member, full access to network with BOLD conference exhibitors, the chance to see Dan Levy and Jameela Jamil speak, and much more.
To close the conference, Mindbody saved the best for last by presenting MBRTS with a $5,000 check donation. This generous donation will make it possible for the franchise to provide 20 families with Family Monthly Memberships to any of our We Rock facilities, Open Play sessions for 100 children, and 5 sensory-safe birthday parties!
Thank you to Mindbody, our Corporate team, and everyone who took part in the Wellness Rocks the Spectrum campaign, for this incredible and memorable experience! We can’t wait to start changing the lives of so many children and their families with this generous contribution.
