CKO Seattle’s 2nd annual Boxing 4 Boobies event was a huge success! The event took place on Saturday October 26, 2013 and was a 90-min cardio kickboxing class that featured CKO’s very own DJ Miss Shelrawka mixing high energy music, and was taught by 4 different CKO Seattle instructors! The event was completely sold out as all 70 bags were taken by 70 highly motivated participants who definitely gave breast cancer a Jab, Cross, Round house to the face! We raised over $4100 and the proceeds will be donated the American Cancer Society – Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. The purpose of this event was to not only raise awareness of breast cancer but to also promote a healthy lifestyle and demonstrate that working out can actually be fun!
While Breast cancer awareness was the overall goal, CKO’s personal goal is to promote a healthy lifestyle because the best form of prevention (for any disease) is being healthy. No amount of walk-a-thons or pink ribbons can overcome an unhealthy lifestyle! From American Cancer Society’s website:
More than half of all cancer deaths could be prevented by making healthy choices like not smoking, staying at a healthy weight, eating right, keeping active, and getting recommended screening tests.
CKO would personally like to thank all 70 participants as well as our awesome staff, without all of you this event would not have been possible! In addition CKO would also like to thank all of our corporate sponsors:
