In an ongoing effort to raise awareness and help the fight against breast cancer all ClubSport and Renaissance ClubSport locations held a series of fitness and social events to raise funds for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
ClubSport and Renaissance ClubSport fitness resorts hosted, for the second year, Pilates for Pink a national Breast Cancer Research Foundation fundraiser sponsored by Shape Magazine. The program was successful in 2007, but this year the program was expanded to include additional fitness activities to appeal to fitness enthusiasts of all types including: Spinning for Pink, Tennis for Pink, Pole Fitness for Pink and other exercise related events. Social events included Pink Parties at the Renaissance ClubSport Hotels sponsored by p.i.n.kÂ® Vodka and proceeds from the parties were donated.
The response from our members was very positive, said Amy Tye, Program Marketing Director at Renaissance ClubSport in Walnut Creek. ItÂ™s great to take positive action against a disease that has touched so many people in our community. As fitness professionals we understand the link between fitness and disease prevention and it is our responsibility to share that knowledge.
In addition to fitness events, clubs also held information nights to share ways to help prevent breast cancer and hosted talks from breast cancer survivors who have experienced the benefits of exercise during treatment and recovery.
ClubSport and Renaissance ClubSport will be donating a total of $18,775 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
