Defined appreciation at South Surrey fitness club

Bodybuilders competing at provincial and national levels will be celebrated July 5 at Sandcastle Fitness Club and bowling alley.

Athletes competing at provincial and national levels will be celebrated July 5 during an event outside Sandcastle Fitness Club and bowling alley.

Organizers say six club members who compete in bodybuilding – including physique and bikini – will be on hand for the noon to 5 p.m. customer-appreciation day.

White Rock pharmacist Brandie Mabee is to be among those on hand, greeting guests and posing for photos. The 26-year-old competed in her first show 2½years ago, and placed third at provincials this year. She is currently training for an NCP competition in Washington.

The club’s front parking lot will be closed for the event, which is being held in partnership with White Rock Reflex and is to also include a barbecue and bouncy castle. There will also be prize draws with proceeds to BC Childrens Hospital.

Sandcastle Fitness is located at 1938 152 St.
