Stockton-based In-Shape Health Clubs, with more than 70 locations throughout the state, is flexing its money-raising muscle. The all-encompassing fitness provider is striving to raise $100,000 for cancer research.
For the third year in a row, In-Shape will fundraise and the proceeds will benefit the American Cancer Society and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
According to a statement released by In-Shape, the money will be raised by various means.
- donate $1 for every new member who joins in October
- be the major sponsor of Making Strides Against Breast Cancer in Stockton, Modesto and Bakersfield
- host Weekend Warrior-themed workout classes every weekend in October
- sell paper kettlebells and special edition active wear
- will donate $1 for every photo shared on social media tagged with the hastag #InShapeFightsCancer
“Cancer affects us all. Our goal is to inspire our communities to live healthy, fit and happy and #InShapeFightsCancer helps us fulfill this mission in a meaningful way,” said Rich Nelsen, In-Shape CEO.
Nelsen added that the company was confident it would meet the $100,000 goal.
“The communities in our clubs are supportive – whether it’s being there for each other through a fitness journey, a family transition or a fight against cancer,” Nelsen said.
