In recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, Jazzercise Murray in conjunction with B U Yoga Studio raised over $550 for Murray-Calloway County Hospital’s “Call Out Cancer” Campaign to build a new regional cancer center. The funds donated will go directly toward the building project.
“We certainly appreciate our community supporters and the creative way Jazzercise hosted a free, socially distanced community wellness event to get people involved to donate,” said Lisa Shoemaker, Senior Philanthropy Officer.
The Enduring Hope “Call Out Cancer” telethon supported the building of a new regional cancer center to care for families within our region. The funds raised will support new cancer technology including a new linear accelerator, chemotherapy room, and infusion center.
“Owning a boutique fitness studio in Murray, I fervently support the health and wellness of our clients. But I also grew up here and care about my friends, neighbors, and our community. Nearly everyone has been touched by cancer in some way. Just in my own family, we’ve had family members fight thyroid, breast, skin, and colorectal cancer. There are so many things to deal with when receiving a cancer diagnosis, I just don’t believe that having to worry about where to go for treatment should be one of them,” said Beth Podrovitz, Jazzercise Murray.
