9Round Nation is gearing up to KICK for a CURE!!
On Thursday October 24th the entire 9Round Nation will have one goal. The mission is: TO DO AS MANY KICKS AS POSSIBLE This is the 2nd Annual Kick-A-Thon and the purpose of this exciting event is to raise money for the Breast Cancer cause.
Here's how it works. Each member or non-member that comes in the 9Round club to workout will be counting their kicks during the 30 minute session. That particular club has agreed to give 1 penny for every kick done that day to a Breast Cancer Charity of their choice. Each club averages around 25,000 kicks in one day and currently we have 72 clubs participating. That's a chance to do a whopping 1,800,000 kicks in one day and $18,000 going to fight Breast Cancer. "We did the event for the first time last year and was very pleased at the turnout, the excitement, and the success that we had. We raised $7,000 last year and we have a goal of $18,000 this year. Our entire chain is over twice as large this year also, so I think we can do it. Goals we set, are goals we get." says Founder and CEO Shannon "The Cannon" Hudson.
Whether you are a 9Round member or not, please come in that day and KICK FOR A CURE. The workout will be themed for kicks so be ready. The event will last all day long so remember there is NO class time at 9Round. Come in anytime of day and be ready to sweat, smile, and kick for a cure. Here are the details.
WHEN: Thursday October 24th
