HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo. – February 8, 2010 – Fifty-six floors, 1,098 steps and a very important cause. That’s the goal for 12 employees at the Elements Therapeutic Massage Franchise Support Center in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, who will enter as a team in the 2010 Anthem Fight for Air Climb on Feb. 28.
The fundraiser for the American Lung Association will take place at the Republic Plaza in downtown Denver, Colorado, the tallest building in the Rocky Mountain West. Participants will climb the stairwell from the basement of the building to the top floor–-a total of 56 stories.
The team from Elements Therapeutic Massage will include: Sue Beranek, Chris Eley, Stacy Eley, Kristine Fisher, Kyle Gjersee, Eric Goetsch, Jill Howard, Sandy Keese, Michele Merhib, Stacy Nordby, Katie Shanahan, Todd Webster and Scott Wendrych. To sponsor a climber, donations can be made online at www.mrsnv.com/evt/e01/team.jsp?id=2863&tid=42563.
“Every day we look for ways to practice what we preach as we promote health and wellness through our business and the growth of our therapeutic massage franchise across the country,” said Kyle Gjersee, senior vice president and chief operating officer of Elements Therapeutic Massage. “The Fight for Air event is a great way to welcome a physical challenge, raise money for an important organization, increase awareness for lung disease and live a healthy life in the process.”
