Recently, Orangetheory Fitness (OTF), CKO Kickboxing, and other local businesses raised more than $2,000.00 for the Oncology Special Needs Fund of the Hunterdon Regional Cancer Center.
Orangetheory Fitness, located in Flemington, hosted their first Row-4-A-Cure. Taking place over 10 days, their clients were encouraged to donate money for an OTF staff member of their choice to row 100 meters for $10. They successfully raised $1,100.
As part of a Breast Cancer Awareness Punch-a-Thon, CKO Kickboxing of Flemington, along with local businesses, raised more than $1,700. Participants included CKO members, friends, staff of Mid-Jersey Orthopaedics, and three cancer survivors.
Dedicating their time to instruct during the event, the CKO Trainers were also supported in their efforts by several different businesses including:
Amwell Valley Diner
Chimney Rock Inn
Flemington Department Store
Max’s Market & Eatery
ShopRite of Flemington
The Art of Dentistry & Spa
Medical bills can be costly. Recognizing this, the Hunterdon Regional Cancer Center established the Oncology Special Needs Fund in order to assist their patients with any outstanding financial needs they may have. For example, social workers identify if a patient needs help paying their medical bills, utility bills, groceries, or other significant needs. The patient can then request the funds through the Cancer Center, and the Foundation will pay the bills directly.
In 2019, “Fit for Cancer,” will be held on March 15th and 16th with many area fitness facilities participating. If you would like more information on how your gym can participate, please call the Hunterdon Healthcare Foundation at 908-788-6141.
