Celebrate Fitness to benefit breast cancer

Need some motivation to break out of a winter workout funk?

How about roundtrip airfare for two, a $500 gift certificate to Lord & Taylor and two nights stay at a luxury Manhattan hotel?

Or the best reason of all: to help raise money to benefit breast cancer programs and research at the Siteman Cancer Center.

The annual Celebrate Fitness workshop will take place from 8-10 a.m. March 6 at the Athletic Complex on the Hilltop Campus. Registration will begin at 7:30 a.m.

You can choose from three workouts: There’s a 90-minute, high-energy class featuring aerobics, NIA (expressive movement) and kickboxing followed by a yoga cool-down.

Too fast-paced? Instead, you can choose 90 minutes of beginning or intermediate yoga to help soothe tensions from a stressful workweek.

Last year, the effort raised $35,000. The goal this year: $50,000.

Participants can pre-register with a $20 donation by going online to celebrate-fitness.org or by calling 747-7222; or they can pay a $25 fee at the door.
