Opelika Observer

HealthPlus Fitness Center is organizing a one-mile walk called “Fit to Fight” to raise money for the Oncology Wellness Program at East Alabama Medical Center on May 11 from 8 a.m. to noon.
In addition to the celebration walk, there will be a silent auction, open house of HealthPlus, free chair massages, group fitness classes and skin cancer screenings, representatives from the hospital’s newly opened cancer center and nutrition services department and more.
All profits made from the Fit to Fight fundraiser help support this wonderful program by the staff and training costs of HealthPlus Fitness Center.
