HARVEY — Whether it’s one mile, or 5, Anytime Fitness of Harvey is using your accrued mileage to donate to Cancer Care for Marquette County.

“We partnered with Cancer Care of Marquette County because they do really amazing things in our community to support those who are going through a tough time with cancer. Not only breast cancer, but any type of cancer,” said owner of Anytime Fitness Harvey, Jamie Thayer. “And being that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, this was the perfect time to shed a light on something that most families have been affected by in some way, shape, or form.”

Those at Anytime Fitness threw a ‘Party for Pink’, decked with goodies, basket raffles, hair extensions, and massages. From 8 a.m. until 8 p.m., Anytime Fitness of Harvey will be donating 25 cents for every mile put on any of the cardio equipment.

“As far as logging the miles, you can run, walk, bike, row, step, anything, it all counts. So, you do not have to be a runner to come in and log the miles,” Thayer added.

Though many members are using today to show their pink pride, the initiative is also open to non-members.

Rosemary Fields, a Party for Pink participant and member of Anytime Fitness, explained, “You know, it’s great to be a part of the community. I just recently joined back to this gym. I came back because they’re so involved with our community and giving back. I needed to workout anyways today, so might as well put in some miles for the cause.”

All you have to do is jump on one of the machines marked pink, and log your miles.
