NEWBERRY — Anytime Fitness of Newberry and Chapin teamed up in October to donate to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation by challenging members to push themselves, resulting in a monetary donation to the BCRF.
Both clubs dedicated a treadmill and decorated it pink for the month of October. Each mile logged on the pink treadmill equaled a one dollar donation to BCRF on behalf of the fitness clubs.
Jessica Shealy, owner of Anytime Fitness, was thrilled with the amount of money raised for Breast Cancer.
“We were so excited to see how well received the fundraiser was from our members. It was great to see members push themselves more for a great cause,” she said. “So many members were encouraging each other to spend more time on the treadmill.”
Participates were encouraged to do their cardio on the pink treadmill and management kept a record of the miles recorded.
Between both Newberry and Chapin fitness clubs, a total amount of $1,353 was raised for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
