Introducing our new Ping Pong Flex League! Here’s how it works: Players are divided into two groups based on skill level. An email roster and weekly match schedule will be sent out at the beginning of the session, so that players can contact their opponents and schedule each match. The match format will be best 2 out of 3 games played up to 21. Each player will play two matches per week for the first nine weeks of the session. During the 10th week, the top eight players from each group will play a single elimination tournament. The winners of each division will receive a free Ping Pong Flex League session. The runner-ups will receive a $25 Lakeshore gift card.

Tension headaches can be caused by many factors, but faulty postural habits are the most common. Whether drafting a proposal, checking email, or playing video games, the majority of the population spends an inordinate amount of time in front of a computer. If your head and shoulders protrude forward in sitting, gravity starts to pull harder on your muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Chronic overuse leads to neck pain, stiffness, and ultimately tension headaches. Make an effort to correct your sitting posture and feel the benefits of less pain!

In 2004, Jennifer Goodman Linn was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called Sarcoma. She was only 33 years old and had been married for just over a year to David Linn of Deerfield, IL. She was a graduate of Duke University and Harvard Business School. She also was an avid, active member of a health club, where she loved to take cycle classes. Not someone you would expect to be diagnosed with cancer. Yet, that is what happened because cancer does not discriminate.
In 2007, Jennifer and her husband created the charity Cycle for Survival, which to date has raised more than $22 million for rare cancer research. It is an indoor team cycling event that is now one of the world’s fastest-growing athletic fundraising events. Cycle for Survival 2013 will take place on February 9th at more than 50 satellite locations around the world.
This year, Lakeshore SF is proud to have two of our members sponsoring teams that are participating in this great event: Keith Bodner’s team “Bodner’s Bikers” & Andrea Hesser’s team “A Wheel Cure.” To donate to their teams or for more information about this inspiring event, visit: www.cycleforsurvival.org.
