Fundraiser for St. Jude Children's Hospital

WHAT: A Workout for St. Jude event is warming up to raise funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, one of the world’s premier centers for the research and treatment of pediatric cancer and other catastrophic childhood diseases, and the top children’s cancer hospital in the nation, according to U.S. News & World Report.

Members of Total Fitness Exercise and Nutrition Center will demonstrate, and maybe test, their conditioning during an exhibition to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Sponsors will donate to the cause based on how much poundage is lifted by each participant (lbs x reps x sets). So a little weight done a lot can be as good as a lot of weight done a few times! Come down to Total Fitness in the revitalized Merchants Square and check it out! Samples will be given out of various nutrition products, prize for the participants and lots more.

WHEN: April 30, 2011

WHERE: Total Fitness
4401 Governor Printz Blvd.
Wilmington, DE 19810

INTERVIEW OPPORTUNITIES: Professional trainers will be on hand to answer questions.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: St. Jude depends on community-based fundraising programs like Workout for St. Jude. At St. Jude, families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance and no child is ever denied treatment because of the family's inability to pay. The daily operating cost for St. Jude is $1.5 million, which is primarily covered by public contributions.
