NORTHBOROUGH _ The Core Connection, LLC will be raising funds to help fight breast cancer, in recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
In 2012, the Northborough-based fitness company raised $1,100 for the Susan G. Komen® for the Cure last October. This was achieved through the dedication of the company’s founder Rita Matraia, and her instructors who offered nine classes with the only cost being a donation to benefit breast cancer research. Several instructors donated both their time and their paychecks.
Rita Matraia is a Certified Stott Pilates Instructor, an AFAA Certified Personal Trainer, and an ACE certified Weight and Lifestyle Management Consultant. She has a B.S. and B.A from the University of Rhode Island and an MBA from Babson College.
