In 2008, three men walked into a bar and came up with an idea: to take a break from alcohol and help a family member affected by cancer by raising $3,000 for a TV in the hospital waiting room. Well, they completely smashed that goal and $250,000 later, the very first Dry July was born!

Ten years on, the Dry July Foundation has raised $130 million and is very much still helping people affected by cancer, improving their comfort, care and wellbeing every day – whether it be a comfier chair at the hospital, a lift to an appointment or a free massage.

This July, CORE+ is going dry to help raise even more funds, while working towards our fitness goals. Are you with us?

What you need to know:  

  • Get on board from July 1-31. Make sure you enrol in time!
  • To enrol, donate $10 to your CORE+ studio or via the CORE+ website – we’ll pass 100% of the proceeds directly onto the Dry July Foundation
  • Commit to 3x CORE+ classes per week
  • And of course, no drinking!  

Once you’ve made your $10 donation, you can use your current CORE+ pass or – if you’re not yet a member – you can still get involved by purchasing 1 month of unlimited mat classes for $200, or 14 reformer classes for $340.

On Tuesday July 31 (following the 6:30pm class) we’ll be celebrating our huge achievement with a party – think green smoothies, kombucha and health balls!

Visit the Dry July Foundation website to learn a little more about how they help those affected by cancer and if you have a question, let us know via the CORE+ Facebook page.
