October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. One of our own, Meg Paradis, who was diagnosed in the Spring has undergone treatments and recently returned to teaching at Worcester Fitness. She wants to give back to the community that has supported her during the previous several months by hosting special events in October. The event will take place in the first week of October and is designed to raise fund for Dana-Farber Cancer Center and to raise awareness during BCAM.

Day 1: Monday October 2nd Kicks off Breast Cancer Awareness Week at Worcester Fitness. Representatives from DFCC and the Jimmy Fund will be in our lobby from 4pm to 7pm with vital information, prizes, giveaways and fun. There may be chair massages and other fun activities.
