Run on a Cybex pink treadmill, raise money for breast cancer research

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, as we are all aware. So it is no surprise if you walk into your health club and you see a pink treadmill.

Cybex is in the midst of its Fourth Annual Pink Ribbon Run. For each mile run on the hundreds of pink treadmills in facilities in 43 U.S. states in October, Cybex will donate $.10. More than $100,000 has been raised in the first three years.

While the money raised will help find a cure, women who exercise - on the treadmill or elsewhere - can help cut down the chances of breast cancer, according to many studies. One said that women who exercised 10-19 hours per week had a 30% lower risk of breast cancer.

Absolutely this is known to all that October is the month of raising consciousness of breast cancer. I love pink color and its properties. I use my sign which color is pink and I always use it and make the consciousness on breast cancer how many times I sign by this pen. Everyone needs to come to donate some amount for breast cancer awareness and its issues. Thank you for writing such like a content.
