FITNESS CHALLENGE: Endurance Event To Fight Cancer
Ten teams are resting after an extreme 5-hour fitness challenge at Fitness World in Ankeny. They participated in six 30-minute endurance challenges with 15 minute breaks in-between.
This was all a part of a fundraiser for Cops Against Cancer. The organization is a volunteer based program that assists patients and families affected by cancer.
In the past two years the organization has helped more than 250 families around Iowa, and more families are coming forward asking for help.
Founder Craig Phinney says at the rate they`re going they`ll need to raise around $120,000 a year. This event will raise around $1,000.
