Did you hear all the buzz about the recent Move for Minds event that took place in 8 different cities across the U.S at the same time last Sunday, June 4th? I just so happened to attend the event held in Miami, FL and I have put together all the info you need to know about this amazing, life-changing movement!
Let me start by saying that this event was presented by Maria Shriver and Equinox. As many of you may or may not know, Maria is the founder of The Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement. The organization’s mission is to raise funds for research and potentially find a cure for Alzheimer’s. Did you know that every 66 seconds a new brain develops Alzheimer’s and 2/3 of those brains belong to Women? Maria is on the hunt to find out why.
In order to participate, each attendee had to raise at least $250 dollars. The three hour event consisted of a one hour workout, one hour of networking and time to look at all of the vendors along with a time to refuel with healthy snacks (which were complimentary), and a one hour panel.
The workout: The one hour workout was a special designed workout that included both cardiovascular and meditation exercises. See video below.
The Marketplace: i.e the brain-healthy snack break/networking time also gave participants an opportunity to check out the innovative products from the sponsors. There were great sponsors like Beats by Dr. Dre, Cole Haan, Smart Water, Lyft and more. My personal favorite perk from the sponsors was receiving a $250 voucher code to receive a free pair of Cole Haan shoes!
The Panel: The panel was filled with memory coaches, life coaches, nutritionists and doctors who all realize the gap we need to fill when it comes to Alzheimer awareness. We learned memory techniques to help us train our brains to remember with visuals.
The Move for Minds event took place at Equinox in the beautiful Four Seasons Hotel in Brickell. Women were empowered, they engaged and were educated for such an important cause that many of us, like myself prior to attending would never have realized the importance. I encourage you all to look into this event, invite your friends and family next year in a city near you.
Thank you for reading. I hope the this amazing cause caught your attention! If you aren’t already, follow me on Instagram @monicarpramos_ to find out about more events like this in South Florida!
