I'm fundraising for EMpower!
Neon Liberty is taking on the EM GIVES Challenge in an effort to empower 1,000 of the most marginalized young people in developing countries. We are fostering all three tenets of EmPower's mission statement: health, livelihoods and education by hosting four donation based community fitness classes.
Neon Liberty will partner with Sweat From Home (https://www.sweatfh.com/ : 3 Classes) and Yama Yoga Wellness (https://www.deborahliu.com/ : 1 Class) to host four one hour classes emphasizing strength, mobility and high intensity interval training for people of all levels. Classes will be held on each Wednesday from October 21 to November 11 at 6:30pm.
Join us as we take on this challenge and help us achieve our fundraising goal!
All donation amounts are welcome, especially those that will propel us above and beyond our goal of $2,000! Neon Liberty has already covered the cost of hosting the classes, meaning that 100% of the proceeds will go directly to EMpower.

Join Deborah Liu, an international yoga and fitness instructor, for a fun, dynamic, and invigorating power hour! The class will begin with HIIT-inspired (High Intensity Interval Training) moves to warm up the body before moving through an inspired flow to strengthen core, legs, arms and shoulders while discovering deeper flexibility. The practice integrates the 8-limbs of yoga so the student learns how to go deeper with strength and mobility by linking with their breath.
EMpower – The Emerging Markets Foundation is a global philanthropic foundation focused on empowering marginalized young people in emerging market countries.
