Help 30 Minute Hit Fight Against Cancer

Since 2004, 30 Minute Hit has made a difference in the lives of thousands of women, but this October, they are inviting women to give back. This 30-minute boxing and kickboxing circuit workout company has already raised more than $950,000 in the fight against cancer, and they intend to continue. Throughout October, members are invited to honor their grandmother, mother, sister, aunt, cousin or any special lady by participating in the “Kick the *&%! out of Cancer” fundraiser. Members will help to uncover the cure for women’s cancer through the number of times they complete the 30 Minute Hit Circuit.

Events include a Men’s Night where members bring in their unsuspecting man of choice to be put through the HIT circuit, a Kids HIT where the children of our members can experience the HIT for themselves, and even a few Trainer Payback opportunities where the member switches out their least favorite station with the trainer of their choice. You can also donate directly at KickWomensCancer.com or stop in at our location at 658 Genoa Way for more details.
