Celebrate Fitness To Be Held March 9

Runners participate in Celebrate Fitness.

Feb. 6, 2013 – Celebrate Fitness, an annual 90-minute fitness workshop for men and women, will be held March 9 at the Washington University Athletic Complex. Participants will choose one of eight exercise activities, including a competitive 10K run managed by the Missouri Running Co.

Now in its 13th year, Celebrate Fitness has grown from a one-workout event in a high school gym to the multiworkout format that it is today. To date, the event has raised more than $1 million for cancer research and support projects at the Siteman Cancer Center.

This year’s Celebrate Fitness benefits two initiatives at Siteman: the Young Women’s Breast Cancer Program, a support and research program focused on breast cancer patients under the age of 44, and the Director’s Discovery Fund, which provides funding for promising, cutting-edge research at Siteman.

In addition to the 10K run, Celebrate Fitness workout options include:

  • Zumba
  • Water aerobics
  • Yoga
  • Boot camp 
  • 5K run managed by Missouri Running Co.
  • 5K walk
  • 1-mile fun walk
