The Clarksville Athletic Club donates $1,500 to the American Cancer Society for Breast Cancer Research.
Clarksville, TN – The Clarksville Athletic Club, while promoting wellness and fitness with conventional fitness equipment and activity, extends its message of overall wellness to giving back to the community by supporting women’s health during the month of October raising awareness of Breast Cancer.
The Clarksville Athletic Club involved its patrons in the Breast Cancer effort with the signature ribbon color (pink) while promoting fitness and commitment to giving back to the community.
Pink treadmills were purchased and installed, with visual-added impact, to capture the attention of its patrons and join in the fight against breast cancer, supporting breast cancer research.
Starting October 2012, the miles collected on the pink treadmills resulted in more than $1,500 donated in support of research to cure breast cancer.
Cheryl Bernardo, Retention Director, stated that “…Clarksville Athletic Clubs knows the importance of giving back to our community. We are proud to have been a part of this wonderful cause, so we decided to continue all year long. I challenge (other) businesses to be part of this cause to give back. We must find a cure.”
We are hopeful that the Clarksville Athletic Club will set the standard for businesses in the Clarksville community, that the Clarksville business community will provide unified support to the American Cancer Society in its fight for a cure.
The effort has been well received by the Clarksville Athletic Club and has since been adopted to continue for the duration of the year. We are proud for the advocacy of the Clarksville Athletic Club and that, while promoting fitness and wellness, it is cultivating a sense of community with its patrons and promoting the importance of giving back.
