Fit for Uganda

Come support Women Gather member Dr. Aldene Zeno and Medicine for Humanity with a special fitness fundraiser at the grand opening of Crossfit 1440/Lomita Athletics on Saturday, August 25th. ALL proceeds raised will go towards helping women in need of surgery in Uganda! Join us for a morning full of fitness, fundraising, and fun!

In September, Aldene is traveling to Uganda with other UCLA surgeons to assist Medicine for Humanity. This organization provides much-needed surgeries to help women who have injuries from childbirth called obstetrical fistulas. Without this surgery, many women face infections, limited abilities, and a lifetime of complications. With your help, we can support this important cause!
