Cole Fusion Fitness gym in Denver is offering free classes to the public for a week as a way to raise awareness about breast cancer.
The initiative, which is being called "Kick for the Cure," allows people to participate in a range of activities including cardio kickboxing, boot camp and hip-hop routines.
Frankie Cole, the owner of the gym, said that he would decorate his gym with pink ribbons throughout the week and encourage his members to wear pink to show support for the noble cause.
Money raised via donations will be given to the Susan G. Komen foundation to help it in fighting back the disease.
Cole said that he was committed to use his gym to raise awareness and money for not only fight against breast cancer but also other diseases that affected the society. He added that the pink ribbons in his gym would soon turn to red as the next fight his gym would take on would be for heart disease.
Speaking about the initiative, a 6-year survivor of breast cancer, Saundra Robinson, said, "Donations like this for 'Kick for the Cure' go to our local affiliate and it stays right here at home and that's what we're doing."
Separately, Tupelo's Susan G. Komen race for Cure on Saturday attracted thousands of cancer survivors, their relatives and other people from all over north Missisippi and its surrounding area.
