First Skinfit event, Jenny's Light 5k
Yesterday, we had our first Skinfit booth at the Jenny's Light 5k in Los Gatos and it was a success.
We got up early, realized how much we forgot to do, and scrambled for a couple hours to make it all come together. A HUGE learning experience for sure! The event was a success on several fronts. We were there to support Jenny's Light, which is a charity that has been created by Becky Lavelle to improve and save lives by increasing awareness of all perinatal mood disorders including postpartum depression. We sold Jenny's Light shirts, candles, and water bottles bringing in $1,000 for the charity! On the Skinfit front, we sold some product, met a ton of people, and had prime exposure to 400 runners...not a bad first showing!!!!
Despite the rain people showed up to support the charity, which was awesome to see. We feel very lucky to have been included in this event...at Skinfit we are very passionate about giving back to the community so this was a perfect match.
Please visit Jenny's Light to learn more about it and to support the efforts of Becky as she continues to build awareness.
Next weekend is another big weekend....Skinfit will be represented at both the Stanford Treeathlon and Trifest! If you are at either event come say hi!
