Fit4Good Planet Fitness Cancer Challenge 2019 is an initiative developed in partnership Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) and Planet Fitness Gyms with the aim of raising funds for care and support programmes offered at all CANSA Care Centres country-wide, with 100% of the funds raised going directly to this cause.
The Fit4Good Planet Fitness Challenge launches on World Cancer Day, 4 February 2019. It involves a corporate and peer-to-peer fundraising event with popular fitness activities where participants form teams with the option of riding a stationary bike or running on a treadmill to raise money as a community of contestants under one roof, by cycling or running for a very worthy cause, uniting members of families, schools businesses and friends in the fight against cancer.
