“We are very thankful for the tremendous success of our Month of Miracles Campaign with Club Pilates,” said Autumn Strier, co-founder and CEO of Miracles for Kids. “Through this partnership, we will be able to significantly improve the lives of many children and families who are struggling with the challenges that come with battling life-threatening illnesses.”

Club Pilates further extended its support of Miracles for Kids by participating in the organization’s annual Surf & Paddle Summer Camp Program, which is designed to treat the critically ill children of CHOC Children’s Hospital, Mattel Children’s Hospital, and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles to a day of healthy outdoor fun and water activities.

“Club Pilates is committed to building healthy communities and partnering with Miracles for Kids is an important part of that mission,” said Anthony Geisler, CEO of Club Pilates. “Through this partnership, our new members will improve their fitness, while we are able to provide important funds to support families with children facing serious illness.”

Miracles for Kids families not only face the possibility of losing their child to a life-threatening illness, but also fight bankruptcy, depression, hunger and homelessness. The nonprofit is one of the only organizations on the West Coast dedicated to alleviating these stressors. Since launching in 2002, Miracles for Kids has served more than 1,000 at risk families with children in treatment at leading children’s hospitals across California – UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, Mattel Children’s UCLA and CHOC Children’s.
