8th Annual Muscles in Motion Event

Saturday June 2nd, 2018

Come join us for:

Live music by DJ Sabotage, Raffle Prizes, 50/50, Subway Vendor, Kids Activities, and more!

2011 marked the first year for the Muscles in Motion event in support of Canadians affected with Muscular Dystrophy and other neuromuscular disorders. Muscles in Motion includes a 1km, 4km, or 8km Trail Run/Walk and Fire Fighter Fitness Challenge. The Trail Run will follow the scenic paths of Jarvis Bay Provincial Park. You will be challenged with natural terrain, hills and enjoy some lakeside views.

The Fire Fighter Fitness Challenge will push your physical limits when competing in 5 intense stations. A maximum of 6 people will work together as a team. Each station is timed for 8 minutes and your team will work together to complete as many rounds as possible. The stations are designed with fire fighter training ideas.

Meet other individuals and families who are affected by neuromuscular disorders and interact in a supportive, fully accessible environment with people who share your passion to make a difference.

  • About the organizers 

    Kim Reinhart with Optimal Fitness is very honored and excited to be able to host such an important event. Kim has always had a goal and vision to create an event to promote awareness and help find a cure for Muscular Dystrophy. 8 years ago, her nephew was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrohphy (DMD), a rapidly-worsening form of muscular dystrophy.

    DMD is an inherited disorder. The muscles become weaker as the individual gets older. This is because the body can not make the muscle protein called dystrophin. This makes the muscle cells weak and they gradually break down. Over time, persons with this disorder may lose the ability to walk, speak, and ultimately breathe. For some individuals, the disorder is fatal. There is currently no cure.

    The event was designed to challenge both your cardiovascular strength and also see how far you can push your physical limits. Until you lose your ability to use your muscles, you really don’t realize how much we take them for granted. This challenge will definitely have every muscle moving in your body to help you realize how important they really are.

    Together, let’s make muscles move and find that missing puzzle piece that will lead us to a cure for all that are affected by neuromuscular disorders.
