The Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation is so excited about the star power coming to BAM Ottawa. The announcement was made at our sponsor's mall the St Laurent Centre during a pep rally a little after lunch on Friday, March 9, 2012. Fitness guru Richard Simmons has lent his star power to Bust a Move events across the country and the Cancer Foundation is thrilled he will be on hand April 21 to pump up the energy of this wildly energetic and empowering event.
There are over 150 people signed up for this unique fitness event. The indoor tennis courts at our location sponsor The Ottawa Athletic Club will be transformed into a giant stage where different fitness activities will take place during the course of the day. There is still time to start a team, join a team or donate to this great cause. Money raised is going to help fund projects that will benefit breast cancer patients and their families in our region through the expansion of the Ottawa Hospital Cancer Centre and cancer coaching programs at the Maplesoft Centre.
Leading up to the event there is a great contest called Find Richard involving a larger-than-life cut out of Richard. Details to follow soon.
This is going to be a great event. Thanks Richard for coming on board.
