Breast Cancer Awareness Month at Snap Fitness Harrison Township

Local gym, Snap Fitness Harrison Township, located in the Mariners Pointe Shopping Center, conducts a Pink Ribbon Program each year during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Each year, members and their guests workout and record their minutes and distance on pink ribbon designated cardio equipment throughout the gym. The participants raise money for cancer research and awareness based on distance and time.  Snap Fitness Harrison Township has made a commitment to contribute to breast cancer research every year, thanks to the participation of their members and their guests. This year’s month long event will contribute over $1,480 to breast cancer research based on their workouts. Last year the program contributed over $700, combining for over $2,000 over the last two years. Snap Fitness HTP is ecstatic at this year’s participation, and looks forward to next year’s contribution.
