FLOW FOR FREEDOM 2018
We want to sincerely thank everyone who made Flow for Freedom 2018 atop Willis Tower Sky Deck a wonderful success. Contributions from this event will provide scholarships to 3 additional women completing programs with Salt and Light Coalition. This event began with an amazing HIIT+YOGA session led by Chicago Health Coach and instructor Jon Alleman. Our supporters also enjoyed a health food fair filled with many local natural goodies, including the popular RX Bars and an alcoholic kombucha that is pre-market. Speakers at this event included our founder Izabel Olson and team members Jessica Mitchell and Eileen Foust. Lastly, we were honored to hear the moving testimony of P.
