First a HUGE thank you to everyone who voted and spread the word around! We’re happy to announce we received the 250 votes needed to move on to the next stage of consideration.
So what happens now? Well, everyone crosses their fingers and thinks happy thoughts while the panel of judges read through all those grant submissions and decide on the lucky 12 who receive $250k. That’s a huge number, I know, but to expand a business and bring new opportunities to the Twin Cities it’s a good number.
You see, Nancy is passionate about pelvic floor health. And she’s made believers of all of us! Did you know that 1 in 3 women will deal with a pelvic floor issue at some point in their life? And that 26 million women in the United States alone have pelvic floor dysfunction? And you too, boys – 6 million men in the US currently deal with pelvic dysfunction such as bladder and bowel incontinence. So aren’t you happy to know that you’re not alone, that so many other people know what you’re going through? And yet, sadly, we feel we can’t talk about this, not to our best friends, not even to our doctors sometimes. We assume it’s an inevitable part of aging. IT’S NOT! It’s absolutely treatable with exercise, and it’s nothing to be ashamed of.
Nancy’s not blushing! She’s telling it like is, and educating the whole world about the pelvic floor. In fact, she’s leading a 3 hour workshop this Friday all about ‘the bizness’ and you should come check it out!
In the mean time, we’ll hopefully have word about the grant by September. So think positive thoughts, and we’ll hopefully report back with good news in a few weeks.
And thank you again … we couldn’t have got there without you.
