The Ultimate Fitness Marathon to save lives, for men and women of all fitness levels in Chicago, September 20th and Cleveland, October 11thBright Pink, a national non-profit on a mission to save lives from breast and ovarian cancer is excited to announce FitFest 2015 dates—the sixth annual event in Chicago on September 20th and the second annual event in Cleveland on October 11th. So, gather your friends and family and join Bright Pink to take breast and ovarian cancer awareness and transform it into life-saving action.
Chicago’s fundraising event will take place at Fitness Formula Club: Union Station (FFC, 444 West Jackson Blvd) from 9:00AM-3:00PM. A modern day take on the more traditional walk or run fundraiser, FitFest is the perfect opportunity for men and women of all fitness levels – there is something for everyone. Participants will take fitness to an entirely new level by building their own perfect health & wellness day from a series of high-energy work outs led by FFC as well as The Dailey Method, Shred415, and WERQ instructors, to breast and ovarian health education, wellness workshops, beauty services, healthy treats and more. Additionally, Bright Pink is proud to welcome the Chicago Bulls/Sox Academy trainers who will lead participants through a series of basketball skills and drills workshops.
“We are beyond grateful to all of our participants over the past five years,” says Bright Pink Founder, Lindsay Avner. “For FitFest 2015, our goal is to attract 1,000 men and women fundraising participants —with those numbers we could raise over $500,000 which would enable us to educate 2,500 doctors through our Women’s Health Provider Educational Initiative, 24,000 women through our Brighten Up Educational Workshops, and empower 8,800 throughAssessYourRisk.org.”
