Everybody Wins: Shop Athleta and Support Swim Across America

Share the News

At the Athleta store opening last May in Towson, shoppers waited up to 30 minutes to get into the store.

They don’t call is Sunday Funday for nothing!

Head out for an evening of fun on Sunday, September 9, from 6 – 9 p.m. at the Athleta store in Dulaney Plaza in Towson and enjoy goodies while helping a worthy cause.  Ten percent of sales that night go to Swim Across America, a fundraiser that benefits the Kimmel Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins.

There will be raffles, free chair massages, health and fitness demonstrations, and gold medal Olympian Theresa Andrews will be there to meet and greet guests. Money collected from the raffle and will also go to Swim Across America.

Makes sense that these two are joining forces.  Swim Across America is, literally, a swim, but in this case across the Chespeake Bay. (They are held all over the country; this one is Baltimore’s third.) It attracts the kind of active women who waited in long lines last May to get into the woman’s athletic clothing chain — think stylish yoga pants, tennis skirts and golf shorts — when the Towson store opened. Sunday night’s event is sure to be packed!

Light refreshments, smoothies, and goodie bags with “some exciting BIG gifts” will also be provided, according to event organizers.

Oh, and remember to wear your trainers: organizers plan 30-minutes fitness classes that everyone can join!
