Fitness for the Cure
02.23.2020 - 02.23.2020 
Participating Village Health Club & Spa Locations - Phoenix
Health & Wellness Events



Who: Health & Fitness reporters, pedal pushers, bike riders, yoga enthusiasts, fitness lovers, and anyone else looking to workout for a good cause at the Village Health Clubs & Spas. 

What: It's time to register for the 10th Annual Fitness for the Cure(formerly Cycle for the Cure). The name may have changed, but the event's goal remains the same: raising cancer research funds for Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) while promoting and engaging in physical activity. This year's event offers expanded workout options beyond in-place cycling - including hiking, yoga, and a Kinesis class. 

Now in it's 10th year, Fitness for the Cure has raised more than $1.2 million for TGen cancer research in the past. 

Fitness for the Cure will be hosted on Sunday, February 23rd, 2020 at all four Valley locations of The Village Health Clubs & Spas in Phoenix, Scottsdale and Chandler, and activity times vary by club. This event is open to the public, so a Village membership is not required to participate in Fitness for the Cure. For each club's activity schedules, participation costs and to register, visit www.tgen.org/fitness

Register for the event online or at your local Village location, or sign up as a virtual participant, which means doing any activity on your own, while raising money for cancer research. Working out with others will leave you feeling inspired and energized by the shared mission to fund groundbreaking research that will take us one step closer to finding a cure. 

The celebration continues immediately with a post-exercise "Cool Down" Party at each Village location following the event on Sunday, February 23rd. Participants can enjoy a complimentary champagne toast, light appetizers, and music. 

When: Sunday, February 23rd, 2020
