Pure Barre, a physical fitness program based in Madison, will be hosting a fundraising event for the Limestone Child Advocacy Center in Athens from 8-9 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 16.
The event will take place in front of the Limestone County Courthouse on Marion Street.
“I reached out to Pure Barre in Madison because I have mutual friends that attend workout classes there, and they said that Pure Barre is very involved in the community,” said Christina Bowsher, community awareness coordinator at the Limestone Child Advocacy Center. “They host these donation based workout classes, so I just reached out to them to get a date together here in Athens.”

“We are excited to work with the Limestone Child Advocacy Center on this event,” Josh Schultz said, owner at Pure Barre Madison. “Christina reached out with the idea to do a class in Athens and we are glad for the opportunity to help an organization doing good in our community.”
The LCAC previously held fundraisers at Buffalo Wild Wings and most recently at Panda Express. Bowsher said they raised a little over $200 at the event at Buffalo Wild Wings. They're still awaiting to find out how much money was raised at Panda Express.
“I'm hoping to raise over $100,” Bowsher said. “I'm hoping for $500, but we'll see.”
A fundraiser will also be held at Chipolte from 4-8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 12. According to Bowsher, participants will either need to tell the cashier at checkout they are with the Limestone Child Advocacy Center or use code BBGVWX2 for online orders.
