2017 Wren Fundraiser


Fitness Fueled Fundraiser

throughout September and October take one (or all!) of the 18 classes.

This year you'll be raising money for WREN.

From Hip Hop Cardio to Kickboxing, we've brought together 19 women trainers across Columbia for a Fitness Fueled Fundraising Series to benefit WREN (Women’s Rights and Empowerment Network) in the months of September and October, culminating in a garden party and check presentation on October 19, 6:00 p.m. at Fit Columbia.

Individuals are encouraged to try something new and sign up for one, or all of the classes. 100% of their class fee will be donated to WREN and will be used to continue their movement to advance the health, economic well-being and rights of South Carolina Women.


Bonus! At your first class, grab a punch card. If you attend at least four classes listed below, you will receive a free WREN T-shirt for participating.

All of these women are either past or current Women in Fitness honorees, a program started by Angie Yong Sellers, owner of Fit Columbia, as a way to honor the women trainers and local business owners who work together to make Columbia a healthier place. “It seemed like a natural progression to expand this program to the entire month of September and October, working together with other women to raise money for non-profits who have the same vision for Columbia and the State.” Angie goes on to say, “When I learned more about WREN and what they are doing to advance women’s rights in the workplace and equal pay in our state, I was eager to help them.” Eme Crawford, Director of Communications and Learning with WREN jumped at the chance, “WREN is thrilled to see our deeply held belief that ‘empowered women empower their communities’ in action, and we’re honored to partner with and benefit from Fit Columbia’s fitness fueled fundraising classes.”
