Fitness club hosting benefit for children with cancer
Ladies Workout Express Fitness Club in Fairfield will have a benefit for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday.
Club members are asking people to come work out for one hour to support the event while trying out the circuit, cardio equipment, classroom, weights or other exercise equipment.
St. Jude depends on community-based fundraising programs, like Workout for St. Jude. At St. Jude, families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance and no child is ever denied treatment because of the family’s inability to pay. The daily operating cost for St. Jude is $1.5 million, which is primarily covered by public contributions.
The Workout for St. Jude event is sponsored by Ladies Workout Express and Everybody’s Whole Food.
