Working up a sweat to raise money for local fire victims

A Traverse City fitness center is hosting a weekend long benefit to help out a Leelanau County family who lost everything in a house fire in March.
Yen Yoga Fitness on Front Street in Traverse City is calling the event, "Karma Weekend," in honor of one of it's instructors, Kyna Getsinger.
Back in early March, Kyna and her family tragically lost their home and all of their belongings in a massive fire.
All classes this weekend are being held on a donation basis and all of the money raised will go to help the Getsinger and her family as they attempt to rebuild their lives.
"I think that it's very important to hold value in your instructors and your employees," says Yen Yoga Fitness Assistant Manager, Tabetha Reed. "And for us to just show how much we love her and how much we care and how many people are supporting her in the community."
Employees tell 7&4 News that they are also accepting food and clothing donations for the family. If you're interested in donating, you can drop off items at Yen Yoga Fitness in Traverse City.
