Supports ACS and Challenges More Community Involvement
Clarksville, TN – Although Breast Cancer Awareness Month has come and gone this year, the struggle for survivors, caregivers, families and friends, and the need for support continue year round. Breast Cancer awareness is not just for the month of October at the Clarksville Athletic Club (CAC).
In fact, “we give all year long and are very proud of it, and this month we donated $800.00 for this wonderful cause in helping to find a cure for Breast Cancer.” stated Cheryl Berardo, Retention Director. As a community we all have responsibility for health (fitness) and wellness.
“It takes a village, and I challenge everyone to stand up and do what they can to help find a cure” Berardo said.
On November 19th the Clarksville Athletic Club sponsored an event called “Rockers for Knockers” and having Mike Robinson perform in our Fit Flix movie room while members work out.
This CAC event is intended to get people talking about how they may be able to help make a difference in our community, and support of Breast Cancer awareness and the American Cancer Society is one of many ways to accomplish that. CAC’ s facility houses beautiful pink treadmills surrounded by walls with inspirational words. Berardo added, “if these walls could talk they would smile and say… Breast Friends Forever!”
