Kicking off the fist of October with the 7th annual Pinktoberfest! Hosted by Eagle’s Dusty Boot Bar it’ll be fun for all ages!
Throughout October, Aria Spa & Club at the Vail Cascade Resort have a variety of ways that support National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. A month-long spa promotion and special yoga sessions will provide members and guests with ways to remain strong, building awareness of the prevention of the disease. The local beneficiary of all the charity events is the Shaw Regional Cancer Center in Edwards.For the third year, Aria Spa will donate $5 to the Shaw Regional Cancer Center for every massage, facial or body treatment that is booked in October. Additionally, the spa is offering a 40 percent discount on all massages, facials, and body treatments, and 20 percent off all nail services through Nov. 30. On Oct. 7 and 8, from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., Aria Club will host a new charity event to raise money to find a cure for breast cancer. The 24 Hours of Aria Challenge encourages participants to get a great cardio workout while supporting the cause, with a suggested donation of $5 for each half hour time slot. Select cardio fitness equipment will be reserved with pink ribbons just for the event. The two days of the event are free and open to all! The Aria tennis program is also involved in raising breast cancer awareness by holding the annual “Rally for the Cause” on Oct. 22 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. The tennis rally will kick off the action with a Longest Rally contest. WOW! Hard to pass up such incredible deals as well as positive active fun for the whole family!

Dogma Athletica in The Riverwalk at Edwards has teamed up with the Shaw Center to promote health and awareness and to give back to the community. Dogma is sponsoring a yoga challenge, encouraging yogis to stretch, sweat and decompress — not only to benefit their own well being, but to give back to those in need. For each yoga class attended, Dogma will donate 50 cents to the Shaw Center. The more classes attended, the more Dogma will donate. In the spirit of healthy competition, Dogma will be tracking how many classes each yogi attends, and the yogis who attend the most classes in the month of October will win prizes. Dogma will also encourage yogis to wear pink throughout the month of October in the spirit of breast cancer awareness.
