This Saturday, Evolution Fitness & Training
is hosting a fundraiser in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month with proceeds going to benefit the Breast and Cervical Cancer Fund of Isabella County.
Owner Tracy Florian says this event is near and dear to her heart because she’s known members of her gym who have struggled with breast cancer or had a loved one who struggled. The goal is to raise $100 per rower.
“I think we have all in some way, shape, or form been touched by some form of cancer, and I think it's important to think about those that we've lost or that have beat cancer,” Florian says.
Eight teams of 10 individuals will be rowing the equivalent of a full marathon — a total of over 41,000 meters on the rowing machines housed at Elevation.
The event will be held outdoors in the gym’s parking lot, located at 1717 S. Mission St. in Mt. Pleasant, on Saturday, Oct. 23, from 8 a.m. until noon. Spectators are welcomed and encouraged.
There are still spaces left on the rowing teams. Those who are interested in participating should contact Florian at firstname.lastname@example.org
. Drop-in donations are welcome.
