Durham, CT – October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM). According to the National Cancer Society, since the awareness program began in 1985, mammography rates have more than doubled for women age 50 and older, and as a result, breast cancer deaths have been on the decline.
Durham Fitness is helping to spread the word for early detection by having its third annual Pedal for Pink on October 27, 2012. According to owner Kristen Kleeman, the event will take place at Durham Fitness, 339 Main Street; Durham, CT from 1:30pm – 3:30 pm.
Anyone can participate in this event, including mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, sons, daughters, friends, etc. The event is open to both gym members and non-gym members alike. We ask for a minimum donation of $20 which includes a t-shirt and water bottle. Proceeds will be donated to Breast Cancer Awareness.
This is an exciting event where everyone who comes to participate or cheer a loved one on will have fun! Come out and show your support by riding with us!
