Curves of Davis, part of the women’s fitness club chain, announced that it will support the American Cancer Society by participating in one of its signature fundraising events, Relay For Life.
The event will take place at Emerson Junior High School this weekend, from 10 a.m. Saturday to 10 a.m. Sunday.
This is the fifth year that Curves of Davis has fielded a team for the event. Last year, the club raised $870. This year, Curves of Davis has set a goal to raise $1,000. Also last year, Curves placed 86 luminarias around the track in honor and memory of loved ones who have battled cancer.
“Relay is such an important event for us,” Curves of Davis owner Ann Arneson said in a news release. “Nearly everyone can relate to being touched by cancer in some way, and this is a great opportunity for us to come together as a community and do something about it. It’s exciting to know that we’re not just participating with the members in our own community, but with other Curves owners and their members across the country as well.”
Curves International is a National Corporate Team Program participant for both Relay for Life and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, making Curves the first corporation to become a National Corporate Team Program member of two key ACS events, the news release said.
