Move with Meaning is an exciting one-day event designed to promote healthy active living, while raising awareness and education about domestic violence, and funds for Haven Society.

During this 4-hour Fitness Challenge participants strengthen their body and their community with a 6-instructor master class. We’re thrilled to have some of Nanaimo’s best fitness instructors on board to provide an amazing fitness experience.

This event kicked off in 2016 with 50 women raising over $9000. In 2017 we doubled those numbers with 100 women and over $20,000 raised!

This year we want YOU to be one of 200 women smiling and sweating as we move our way to a fundraising goal of $50,000!

How does that happen? Register here for a small fee of $25. This goes towards covering the costs of the event and secures your spot! From there you commit to fundraising a minimum of $100.

In exchange for your awesomeness? You not only get a super awesome sweaty spot at the event (including yummy snacks to keep you fuelled!), you get a sweet swag bag filled with goodies including an exclusive Move with Meaning headband from Super You and Charlie Parker Group, a full size bottle of OPI Nail Lacquer from Tigh Na Mara Spa, a $10 cash card from Frontrunners Nanaimo, and a $10 voucher from Woodgrove Centre, a special $79 exclusive registration special for the Live it Up 8k (that’s $20 off the early registration price)! ….and the donations keep rolling in!


This years event is going to be EPIC. And I don't use that word lightly! Why so epic?

  • We will once again be bringing down the house at the Vancouver Island Convention Centre - this time we will be a ballroom 2x the size, with professional audio and video streaming of the stage so everyone can feel like they’re front row divas!
  • Gifts of Gratitude (aka your super sweet swag bag): each participant receives a super sweet swag bag! The swag is still rolling in...but so far it includes an exclusive Move with Meaning custom swag from Super You,  Power House Living Foods Co, Alair Homes, and Charlie Parker Group (stay tuned for exactly what...as soon as it's confirmed and we have our proof we'll announce what it is in the Facebook Event!), a full size bottle of OPI Nail Lacquer from Tigh-Na-Mara Seaside Spa Resort, a $10 cash card from Frontrunners Nanaimo, a $10 voucher from Woodgrove Centre, and a special $79 exclusive registration special for the Live it Up 8k (that’s $20 off the early registration price)!

  • The prizes for our Top 3 fundraisers are extraordinary! They're still rolling in...but let's just say this: it includes yoga and fitness passes from Super You, OmTown and Casa Loca, a pair of shoes and gift certificates from Frontrunners Nanaimo, an entry into the Live it Up 8k and….drumroll…. a spa getaway for two at Tigh Na Mara! Hello #spaheaven
  • Bragging Rights for the Top Fundraising Team, of course! but we are also working on a special surprise for the team that raises the most money! Invite your friends/colleagues/family to join your team and HAVE FUN with it!
