Saint Mary’s Fitness Center raises funds to assist local women with cancer


image002ST. MARY’S CENTER FOR HEALTH AND FITNESS NEWS RELEASE – Through a silent auction held at its annual Celebration of Health member appreciation party in March, the Saint Mary’s Center for Health & Fitness was able to raise over $1,000 for Moms on the Run — a local, non-profit organization that assists local women with cancer.

Moms on the Run sponsors three women per month who have had a female-type of cancer to be members of the Center for Health & Fitness’ medical exercise program. They attend the Cancer Rehabilitation Programs for six months each.

“What Moms on the Run does for the community and women with cancer is unbelievable,” said Miles Mettler, Center for Health & Fitness General Manager. “There are a lot of people behind closed doors on their end working diligently every day to provide those less fortunate with opportunities to succeed. Anything we can do to help them in their efforts is always a blessing.”

Saint Mary’s is sponsoring a team for the annual Moms on the Run 3K/5K Walk, 5K Run or 10K Run on Sunday, May 12. Click here for instructions on how to join the Saint Mary’s team. 

Bids on the items were placed by members of the Center for Health & Fitness. The items donated came from local organizations: Juice Box Yoga, Nevada Athletics Department, Atlantis Casino Resort, Battle Born CrossFit, David Goodman Art, William Furs, Nevada Discovery Museum, Silver Legacy Resort Casino, SOAK Nail Spa & Lounge, Haines Family Fitness, lululemon athletica, Reno Aces, Salsa Reno, Nevada Museum of Art, Donuts to Go and Charles Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy.

If you wish to speak with our Medical Exercise Director Amanda La Torre, or a representative of Moms of the Run, please contact Marketing Coordinator Juan López at [email protected] or 775-770-7236.
